Historical Q & A

How Well Do You Know Saddle Hills County's History?

HmmmmIn October of 2018 the County began asking a series of questions in the Central Peace Signal newspaper to see how well residents know the history of the County and to entertain, have a little fun and share some of the County's history.

We captured those questions and answers below. We owe a debt of gratitude to the members of the communities of Saddle Hills County who helped to produce several books on the area from which we drew most of our questions and answers. For some questions, such as the founding and naming of the County's schools, we were also able to rely on the Alberta Ministry of Education for providing foundational documents.

*If you have any questions and answers you'd like to suggest, please let us know by emailing communications@saddlehills.ab.ca.

Below you will find the questions we asked and the answers, together with the sources of those answers.
