HISTORY OF MUSREAU LAKE , ALBERTA
The name Musreau is of aboriginal origin and one of the meanings of Musreau is, "something noisy or devil-like." The Cree were the first to hear loud noises coming from the lake during the winter. Pockets of gas formed near the bottom of the lake and eventually rose to the surface creating enough pressure to crack the ice. As early as 1915, it was the name that was recorded on government maps. The other meaning of Musreau is said to be a Cree word for a young moose. Moose River is located nearby.
