In February, RadioKBPV began a series of Hotel Histories, initiated by the unfortunate fire that decimate the landmark King Edward Hotel. Farley has continued to crank out histories of other local Inns of southwestern- Alberta in the Pincher Creek Echo and the Shootin' the Breeze weekly newspapers. Today, we carry on that series with the Arlington Hotel of Pincher Creek, and the short history of the Beaver Mines Hotel. We’ll begin with Beaver Mines.
From our Hudson's Bay Company and fur trade heritage, we have the tale of Thanadelthur, an indigenous Chipewyan woman and her journey across the Barrens in the early 1700s.
First, Ranger Gord give you the history of Thanadelthur, then reads from Tales of the Bay, a free downloadable e-comic that you can read along on your computer or personal device, or print off – courtesy of the Hudson’s Bay Company -
-- or -- e-mail Ranger Gord at firstname.lastname@example.org, and he'll send you a PDF document.
The Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village Audio Tours continue with an omnibus presentation of four-in-a-row of our popular boardwalk buildings. Hear the story of the Doctor's Office, the Geitz Stove Shop, the Cyr Family Farm House and the Bakery.
On the current site of Pincher Creek's Provincial Building, the Fraser-McRoberts Department store served the mercantile needs of the community between 1915-1946. Farley and Gord take you back to that era of commerce activity between the two World Wars.
