Overview

Our historical timeline of approximately 500 entries is nearly complete. We have had some innovating to do with the coding of the software, since the project is so incredibly large in scope. Not only do we have text to accommodate, but also maps, diagrams, historical photos and references.

The project accomplishes what no other historical review has done before: it looks at Southern Alberta history through the concurrent lenses of socio-politico-cultural-economic and environmental developments. What happens on the land affects the water – and there are real human stories behind why these decisions were made. Our focus is to highlight the polyphrenia of Southern Alberta and how many of those decisions still resonate with us today. It is only through understanding our past that we can make more conscious, collective decisions about our future.

Scholars, professors, historians, community groups, schools, governments, industry and recreation will benefit greatly from access to this incredible, free resource.
