PERRYVALE

Perryvale is a hamlet in northern Alberta in Athabasca County, located 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) east of Highway 2, 104 kilometres (65 mi) north of Edmonton. It was founded by the Lewis family who moved there from Gibbons in 1905 and was originally called Lewiston. The family ran a stopping house and post office there. Descendants of the Lewis family still live there and the original barn is still standing. Raynor Whitely ran another stopping house in the area, which included a barber shop.

Attractions

Aboriginal Burial Ground - Evidence of an aboriginal burial ground is found nearby, in the SE corner of Cristall Creek.

St. Andrew's Church, built in 1912 , is found near Kinoull Park, a good place for picnics and sports. The hamlet of Kinoull was established in 1911 and named after the home of Scotsman D. Hay, postmaster. It no longer exists but the church and park managed by Pioneer Trail North Foundation maintain the legacy.
