Submit An Alberta Travel Point of Interest

Know Some History?  Please Share!

History Check offers a unique opportunity to preserve and share the history of Alberta.

Each community and region has its unique heritage and history, and travel related services, and we are asking for your help in documenting it. Some sites will be of interest to the public and others will be pieces of information to record in our database for researchers to access.

Each site listing or Point of Interest allows for a variety of information. Photos, links to reference materials and information about the site can all be included.


Whether you have all or one piece of information, our search functions allow us to tie bits and pieces together to complete the story or a person, place, event or era of Alberta’s past.


Current or historical photos can be used. Many Archives have given us permission to use photos with the proper credits so please include their name and accession numbers.
