South Peace Regional Archives is celebrating Grande Prairie’s 100th anniversary through a series of historical displays at City Hall.
Executive Director Mary Nutting says this month’s exhibit will focus on the Argonaut company, which was responsible for establishing the Grande Prairie townsite.
She says other exhibits will focus on the growth of our community.
“Like the Town of Grande Prairie, the correspondance that shows the issues that they dealt with, and fun things like the Grande Prairie Electric Company, how electrical power first came to Grande Prairie, and the Chamber of Commerce collection.”
Nutting thinks residents will enjoy seeing some of the original documents and paper artifacts and photographs that showcase Grande Prairie’s rich history.
