“From a very high Foot Hill we gazed on this prospect with admiration and wonder.Within three miles stood the grand old mountain, the wild goat and sheep sporting on its highest summit. At the foot of the hill, and in perfect ignorance of our presence, a band of buffalo were feeding on the richest pasture. To the right of us, and on the north bank of the river, lay the location which we have selected for our new mission.”Reverend George McDougall May 28, 1873 On the 1A Highway between Cochrane and Banff, there stands a Church surrounded by natural grassland. This is the site of Southern Alberta’s first pioneer settlement, Morleyville. The Church was the heart of that settlement and Morleyville was the centre for over 200 people. Today it stands as a powerful reminder of our Western heritage and values.The Mission was the forerunner of Morleyville Settlement. In 1875, there were twenty-three residents of European descent. By 1881, sixty settlers were collecting their mail from the post office inside the trading post. By contrast, in the same year, only 30 people were collecting mail in Fort Calgary.In 1891, 100 families totaling 388 people were listed as living at Morleyville. Today, an interpretive walk winds through the site inviting you to walk back in time while enjoying unspoiled vistas of the Rocky Mountains and Foothills.
