EID Historical Park


The EID Historical Park was established in 1976 by a group of residents and farmers who wanted to preserve the history of the settlers who came to this area starting in 1917. The park is situated on 17 acres, on the old CPR right of way. Our “Sleeping Giant”, the Scandia Pool Elevator (built in 1927) was the first elevator in Alberta to be declared a historic resource. The attached office still has original paperwork, charts and scale tickets. Nearby are the original Bow Slope Shipping Yards, also a Provincial Historic Resource, where thousands of cattle, sheep, and pigs were weighed and shipped off. A cattle car is still waiting on the tracks.

Let us help you get there

Scandia is conveniently located just off Highway #36, also known as Veteran's Memorial Highway, south of Brooks and north of Vauxhall.
