One of Alberta's Oldest Building Opens to the Public
The Clerk's Quarters at Victoria Settlement, the oldest building in the province still resting on its original site, is now open to the public.
The modest, white-washed house is located at Pakan, on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River, 70 miles northeast of Edmonton.
The site is one of the most significant in Alberta.
It was the location of a Methodist mission founded by Reverend George McDougall in 1862, and a Hudson's Bay Company post opened in 1864.
The church and trading post attracted Cree Indians and Metis, many of whom settled nearby. After the turn of the century, as settlement patterns began to change, a separate mission was established at Victoria to serve Ukrainian homesteaders.
Because of the importance of this area to the history of the Province, the Historic Sites Service of Alberta Culture has restored the Clerk's Quarters at the settlement. It has been refurnished to reflect life in the 1890s.
Custumed guides are in attendance to welcome visitors. Group tours are available by contacting the Historic Sites Service in Edmonton.
To reach the Victoria Settlement take highway 45 through Bruderheim, then north on secondary road 855 to the river and turn east.
The Clerk's Quarters will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily until the end of August.
