The remnants of the original collieries are a treat to walk through, knowing you're stepping in the same building as those who worked there in the early 20th century. The boards at the entrance and throughout the area give a great understanding of what went on in each building. If you're in the area, I highly recommend you stop and check it out!

Standing in the powerhouse looking around and interacting with information boards/photos really give you an idea of the operations of the early coal mine industry. The amazing feats human beings are capable of given the era technology is truly amazing and simply put worth the hour long stop to pay tribute to the pioneers who shaped this province through hardwork and perseverance. Very clean facilities and in the wake of covid-19, very easy to practice social distancing.

This is located right off Hwy. 3 east of Bellevue. It has a number of interesting pictograms describing what the layout and equipment was at this mine in the early 1900's. There is a trail through the collieries site that shows the power house, mine manager's residence and the washing/coking plant. For anyone interested in Alberta mine history, this is a must see.

This is a great place to get out of the car for a short walk to learn about local history. The area is very well maintained, the signage is informative, and when we went it wasn’t too busy so we were able to enjoy the area at our own pace. Worth a stop if you’re in the area!

We really enjoyed checking out the old Ruins here. There are lots of signage to read up on this fastinating place. It is an easy walk, and provides lots of photo Ops. Give yourself a good hour if you are interested in History and/or Photographing Historic places.
