Guided Walk: Rossdale Generating Station area, Saturday July 6, 2 pm

4 Jul

A great opportunity to walk the area around the Rossdale Power Plants and understand the significance of the area in and around the plants.

This guided walking tour meets in front of the Rossdale Community League Building (historic Little Flower School) at 10135-96 Avenue  It will consider the Traditional Burial Ground and Fort Edmonton Cemetery Commemorative Site, which provides a good view of the historic Rossdale Generating Station. The tour will provide information about the significance of the area with a special focus on the Rossdale Generating Station (Maxwell Dewar Building / Low Pressure power plant), which was designated a Provincial Historic Resource in 2001.

Parking is available behind the Community League Building. For more on this, contact information and other events of the Historic Festival, visit www.historicedmonton.ca

    We propose that we incorporate the Traditional Burial Grounds – there is an urgent need to educate the public on this history and would like to participate by having Phllip Coutu -Metis descendant and activist – speak on this matter for your portion of the tour. If you find this applicable, it would be meaningful in our respect.
