History & heritage

This tour of Leduc’s downtown will familiarize you with the history of Leduc, telling you the story about how this city went from a telegraph station on the Calgary Edmonton Railway to the thriving community it is today. Through tragedy and celebration, take a journey back in time and see Leduc from its beginnings. Leduc is located on Treaty 6 territory, home to the Plains, Wood Cree, Nakota, Saulteaux, and Dene nations. Treaty 6 was signed on August 21, 1877 agreeing to peace and mutual respect between settlers and Indigenous peoples. We are all treaty people.

This event runs the duration of Culture Days.

Organized by

On This Spot

The On This Spot app takes people on guided walking tours through the history that surrounds them. At each stop on their journey users will find themselves standing on the spot a historic photo was taken. They can view a then and now photo comparison, use the built in camera to create their own, and read about local history and how it ties into the broader human experience. Based in Vancouver, On This Spot is working with heritage, tourism, and business organizations across Canada to expand the app's coverage.
