After a lot of diligent work from Yellowhead County’s Heritage Advisory Group and input from various local historians and other groups in the area, including the Hinton Historical Society, the new outdoor signage highlighting both the explorer David Thompson’s travels in Brule and other significant spots in the Brule area are up.
The two signs showcase many of the historical landmarks and locations in the Brule area. One focuses on Thompson, the explorer who, with the assistance of local First Nations and Métis explorers, established a route through the Rocky Mountains beginning in 1810 for the North West Company. The second sign has information on both historically relevant sites as well as geographical landmarks such as the nearby dunes and waterfalls.
The signs are located on the road out to Brule at the lookout pullover.
