Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Devon is a town in the province of Alberta, Canada, situated 26 kilometres (16 mi) south of Edmonton, the provincial capital, and located on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River. Devon owes its existence to one of the largest oil discoveries in the world. On 1947 February 13, the Imperial Leduc #1 well struck oil, and the new town of Devon was constructed shortly thereafter by Imperial Oil to accommodate its workers. The company was determined that the town would be well-planned, and Devon holds the distinction of being the first Canadian community to be approved by a Regional Planning Commission. The oil industry remains a major player in the town's business sector, though the economy has diversified to include tourism, manufacturing, and research.show more
