Millet Walking Tour

 
Stop 1- Millet Fire Wagon located in front of the Museum
The President of the Canadian Pacific Railway, Sir William Van Horne, asked Reverend Father Lacombe to name the stations from Lacombe to Edmonton on the Calgary-Edmonton Railway line. Father Lacombe named the village of Millet in 1891 after August Millet, one of Father Lacombe's travelling companions and canoemen, who also worked for the Hudson's Bay Company and Northwest Mounted Police. 

This Historic Walking Tour will take you through some of the points of interest of Millet. Many of the Historic Points of Interest have plaques that give more complete information about the sites.

In order to do the longer tour, which is about 3.3 km, one should set aside about an hour and a half. Most of the walk is done on flat sidewalks or paved paths. There are some areas where there is no sidewalk, or only a shale path. The trail through Pipestone Park includes  a few gentle hills. The main destinations on the Tour can be driven. The Pipestone Trail; however, is walking only.

Take the Accessible Virtual Tour Below, where most pictures were taken in Summer 2009:
