School, Post Office and General Store
Nestled in green rolling hills, on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River, Elk Point is rich in culture, history and opportunity.
In 1909, the first official use of ‘Elk Point’ was recorded when the school, post office and general store were set up.
Elk Point Village Was Founded
From the very get-go, the people of Elk Point have known the importance of embracing new business and rolling with the times. The official Elk Point village was founded in 1938, when a fur trading post was set up.
Both the Hudson's Bay Company and the North West Company had posts on the river near Elk Point. Alberta Culture has built an interpretive centre near the remains of Fort George and Buckingham House that are well worth a visit to if you’re in the area.
Elk Point Bridge
In 1955, a bridge was built to cross the North Saskatchewan River just south of Elk Point and 10,000 people came to the opening. That record breaking event set the pace for the little village with the `mighty voice`.
In the words of one of our founders J.C. Jensen: "We feel pride in our village. We hope that it may grow more beautiful, become ever more conscious of civic pride and truly be a community of which the younger growing generation can always look back to as a sphere of pleasant memories."
There’s always something fun to do in Elk Point! Community spirit is alive and well here, with a wide variety of friendly clubs, teams and hobby groups to join.
