The Last Great West

The Agricultural Settlement of the Peace River Country to 1914

Book - 2005
Rate this:
By the spring of 1909, CN Railway was seemingly poised to enter the region, and a settlement rush appeared imminent. A Peace River Land Office was therefore opened at Grouard, and townships were subdivided on the grasslands of the Grande Prairie. This soon ushered in the first wave of settlement as hundreds of hopeful farmers began to pour in over the Grouard, and later, Edson Trail. Being the most northerly portion of the continent to be opened for homesteading, the Peace River became known as The Last Great West.
