Historia biográfica

The Jasper Historical Society was formed in 1963 by a group of interested members that included Fred Brewster, Constance Peterson as the first historian and Mel Taylor as the first president. The Society was later named the Jasper Yellowhead Historical Society (JYHS). The Society was incorporated in 1977. Monthly meetings included guest speakers, films, field trips relating to local and national history. The objectives of the Society are to encourage the study of the history of Alberta in general and Jasper in particular; and to locate, preserve and mark the local points of historical interest. The first archives and Society office was established in the Municipal Library in 1974. Planning for a permanent Museum and Archives began in 1978; in 1985 a partially completed building on Pyramid Lake Road was purchased and renovated. The Archives moved into the lower floor in 1990; the Museum opened on the upper floor in 1992. The Jasper Yellowhead Museum and Archives reports to the Board of Directors of the Society.

Nota general

The town of Lucerne, BC, located 30 km west of Jasper, was the divisional point for the Canadian Northern Railway. By 1913 the construction of the rail line had reached Lucerne with the exception of two bridges. These were completed and the line was officially opened in 1915. Lucerne consisted of a train station, roundhouse, homes and businesses. It even had a ball diamond and pool hall. In 1923 the CNoR amalgamated with the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. By 1924 it was decided to close the divisional point at Lucerne and move the railway's business and employees to Jasper, the divisional point for the GTP. Most of the businesses soon followed. Soon after there was very little left of the town of Lucerne. More than 250 people moved from Lucerne to Jasper.<br><br>Record No. ID131<br><br>
