Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. High Level is a town in northern Alberta, Canada. It is located at the intersection of the Mackenzie Highway (Highway 35) and Highway 58, approximately 733 kilometres (455 mi) north of Edmonton and 725 kilometres (450 mi) south of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. It is located within Mackenzie County and was founded in 1947.The name High Level originated from the height of the land that separates the Peace River and the Hay River. In 1786, the first fur traders arrived in this area, though it was not until 1947 that High Level was settled. High Level's first power plant was established in 1957, and a year later the first post office was built. The oil fields were discovered in the 1960s, and a railway was run to the area in 1963.show more
