Creator(s): Rundle's Mission Historic Site
When the Reverend Dr. Gerald Hutchinson moved to Pigeon Lake, Alberta, in 1948, he asked his neighbours, "Why is this place called Mission Beach?" When a satisfactory answer wasn't forthcoming, Dr. Hutchinson spent years researching the story of the first mission west of the Red River settlement. His painstaking research led to the designation of Rundle's Mission as a Provincial Historic Site and a National Historic Monument. This exhibit is the story of Rundle's Mission, as told by Dr. Hutchinson.
