Albert Canyon Has a Rich History!!!!

Old Hot Spring

The village, the gorge, the peaks and the hot springs were all named for Major Rogers' nephew, Albert Rogers, who accompanied his uncle on many exploration trips including the discovery of Rogers Pass.


Railway Station

Throughout the years of steam, Albert Canyon was a "pusher" station, with a small roundhouse built in 1916 There was also a CPR agent, operators and a section gang. Upstairs in the station were living quarters for the agent.


Early Settler in a Hot Spring

It was the railway employees who dug, or perhaps blasted, a pit at the hot springs. They then lined it with heavy timbers. That open air "hot tub" was used by visitors and residents for many, many years.

One of the early residents was a Scandinavian miner named Ole Sandberg, who is credited with being the first to use skis in the whole north Kootenay country.

The pioneer proprietor of "The Springs Hotel" was John Skogstrom, and his nephew, Charles Carlson, had the store.


Old Schoolhouse

Like all one-room country schools, the one at Albert Canyon served as a community hall and also housed the worshippers when a minister came to hold a church service.

Nothing now remains of Albert Canyon as it was. The present-day Canyon Hot Springs are some distance away, with the water from the hot springs being piped 2.5 miles down to a commercial pool for everyone to soak their achy bones.
