Historic Ferry Crossings Municipal Historic Area

Former Ferry Crossings are significant for their historic relationship with regional development and settlement patterns. On December 10th, 2020, Smoky Lake County Council adopted Bylaw 1385-20, designating six former ferry sites along the North Saskatchewan River as a Municipal Historic Area, under Section 27 of the Alberta Historical Resources Act.
