History of St. Albert

St. Albert has grown to become one of the largest cities in the region since its foundation in 1861. Located in the Capital region of Alberta, the community welcomes and encourages a family oriented environment where people can learn and grow. Becoming a town in 1904, the city was known for its agriculture, and has come to a place where people come to admire the diverse landscape, including the beautiful Sturgeon River. With a rich cultural tradition, and an endless amount of recreational activities, St. Albert is great place to thrive.

Home of the St. Albert mission settlement and the Father Lacombe Chapel, the area was originally settled by religious missionaries. Believe it or not, the town didn’t become an official city until 1977, and now has more than 63,000 residents. For more information on the history of the area, check out the Musée Héritage Museum.

Currently, the St. Albert is known as the sixth-largest city in Alberta, and in 2014 it was named “Best Place to Live in Canada” by MoneySense Magazine. The city also has more than 85 kilometres of trails called the Red Willow Trail system, and the Arden Theatre holds over 150 performances per year. For more information on local events, check out the city’s website.

Whether you like big city or small town feel, St. Albert has the perfect combination of both. Here at St. Albert Honda, we are pleased to an active member of the community.
