In 2010, Heritage Collaborative Inc. conducted the Flagstaff County Heritage Survey in collaboration with Flagstaff County. Over 100 sites of heritage value within the County were identified and documented for the Heritage Survey including nine one‐ St Boniface 500wroom school houses, six CPR ready‐made farmhouses, five rural churches, four cultural landscapes, two community halls, and a number of homesteads and barns. The Flagstaff County Heritage Survey will assist in the preservation and protection of historic resources, encourage public interest in local history and encourage the further conservation and designation of local heritage resources.

Who is Heritage Collaborative Inc. (HCI)?
HCI is a heritage planning consulting company that provides planning, training, leadership and organizational resources for cultural and heritage projects. HCI has offices in Canmore and Edmonton and works exclusively with heritage and cultural projects in Alberta.

What is a Heritage Survey?
A heritage survey is a way to document and record Flagstaff County's rich "built" history and significant landscapes. This is done by:

  • Photographing buildings, structures and landscapes
  • Researching the history of the photographed resources
  • Recording this history on Site Form provided by the Alberta Government

What is eligible for the survey?
Sites eligible for the survey should be 50 years or older and be significant to the history of Flagstaff County. These may include:

  • Homes and homesteadscpr farm 500w
  • Churches
  • Schools
  • Stores and post offices
  • Grain elevators
  • Monuments
  • River crossings
  • Barns
  • Trails and roadways

Surveyors will not go on private property unless granted permission by the landowner. Inclusion in the survey has no legal impact on the property and does not limit its future use.

What is a Heritage Inventory?
A heritage inventory is a planning and management tool comprised of sites evaluated using the provincial standards for significance and integrity. A draft statement of significance is written for each evaluated site to record why it is significant to Flagstaff County. A site must be listed on a municipal heritage inventory to receive provincial and or federal designation, recognition, and funding. Statements of Significance are also sources of information for the development of heritage awareness, education and interpretation programs, and for promoting tourism. A heritage inventory will further enhance Flagstaff County's ability to manage and promote its heritage resources.

A CLASSIC:

Judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind.

NOTHING…. so beautiful as the big spaces. Steering wheel hand-wavers…salt of the earth folks that are rock of civility. Nothing so beautiful as the empty…in prairie thunderstorm’s electrified sky….in the dance of sun-kissed canola in a breeze. Things resilient in the tug of war with life made complex in a hectic society. In oil and gas, agriculture, and land-based recreation activity that feels free, lies the ingredients for life authentically lived. We are rooted in land and people…seeking simplicity amidst the complexity of life. Flagstaff – full of classics.
