HISTORY OF GEORGE LAKE, ALBERTA

George Lake was originally known as Many Islands Lake. The first settlement of Hines Creek, Alberta was situated south of this area and when the railroad missed the area to the north, like many communities, Hines Creek moved north to its current location. George Lake was the site of the Dumont Brothers Trading Post and the lake was named after George Olstad one of the pioneers of the area. A tribute sign is situated in the park.

Canfor and the Forest Resource Improvement Association of Alberta have made contributions for the maintenance and enhancement of this Recreation Area at George Lake, Alberta.







Looking north at George Lake, one can see how close the lake is to Hines Creek with the elevator visible above the trees.
