Administrative history

In 2008, a Heritage Symposium held at the Grande Prairie Regional generated the idea to form a new chapter of the Historical Society of Alberta to serve the Peace Region. At a meeting held in December, the idea was approved and, under the guidance of Campbell Ross, a steering committee was formed to draw up Goals, a Mission statement, & Bylaws.

In 2009, the Peace Country Historical Society, following a membership drive and consultation with the proper authorities on bylaws, became a legally recognized society and an official branch of the Historical Society of Alberta. The society covers the northwest section of the province from Highway 16 west to Highway 40 then north to Grande Cache. From there to Grande Prairie, then Highway 2 north to Grimshaw then 43 north to the border with the Northwest Territories.

Custodial history

These records were donated by members of the Peace Country Historical Society, Susan Thompson and Leslie [Pearson] Gordon in 2015.
