Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Falher is a town in the Peace Country area of Alberta, Canada. It is located in the Municipal District of Smoky River, along Highway 49. Falher is one of the earliest agricultural communities in the Peace Country. The area was known to missionaries before it was surveyed in 1909 as an Indian Trail that led to British Columbia and later where the railway laid its tracks. In 1912, the settlement of "Mission St-Jean Baptiste de Falher" was opened 5 km from the current location of the town of Falher. When the railway came to the area in 1915, the settlement was named after Father Constant Falher, a Roman Catholic Oblate missionary who was born in the town of Josselin Brittany, France in 1863, arriving at Grouard, Alberta in 1889.show more
