Facility:Father Lacombe Chapel Provincial Historic Site
Description:In 1861, Father Albert Lacombe and his Metis helpers constructed a log building to serve the new St. Albert Roman Catholic Mission.

This simple chapel, Alberta's oldest building, became the centre of the thriving French speaking Metis settlement of St. Albert. Today the chapel has been restored to look much as it did in the early 1860s. Drop in to the chapel and let the Historical Interpreters take you back to an earlier time. Visit the crypt where Father Lacombe and Bishop Grandin are buried. Take a stroll through the cemetery, the resting place of some of St. Albert's first residents.

Interpretive guides lead tours through the chapel and the historic Mission Hill site and demonstrate activities and skills of the time. Education programs and special events are offered as well. Tours are available in English or French.
