Yellowhead County’s heritage signs give viewers a glimpse into the rich heritage that is tied to this area and highlights the people, stories, and land that have helped build the region’s history through transportation, culture, and industry.
New interpretive signs have been placed in several locations around Yellowhead County highlighting the history and natural environment around them. These signs educate readers on what they are looking at and offers insights into the history of the area and highlight features of the environment and our interaction with it.
These newest signs focus on the connection between mining and Evansburg, the exciting past of Robb, and the recently decommissioned Rosevear Ferry that connected communities in the Rosevear across the McLeod River for generations.
These new informational signs that showcase the local history are only a few of the signs put up in Yellowhead County over the last several years by Yellowhead County’s Heritage Advisory Group (with input from several local historians and organizations) who have been developing the content for the signs.
More interpretive and landmark signage can also be found at the Solomon Hill lookout on the way to Brule, at the Luscar roadside overlook, and in Robb and Evansburg.
The signage covers information on the social aspects of living in these areas, the economic and industrial impacts that certain communities had in the area, exploration routes, environmental, and the significance and contribution of the local First-Nations and Métis to the development of the region.
