History / Biographical
Waterton Park is the name of the townsite located within Waterton Lakes National Park and is identified provincially as part of Improvement District No. 4 which itself encompasses the entire park. Residential lots were first surveyed in 1910 and tentatively approved in 1911. Additional lots were incrementally surveyed for public leasing, a practice which continued until 1959 when it was announced no new lots would be leased. Renewable residential and business lot leases are an agreement between individuals and the Government of Canada (for the Crown) for a period of 42 years pending satisfactory completion of building requirements. Over time, leaseholders discovered needs specific to this fairly remote location and stepped up to meet them through a variety of volunteer organizations sometimes, but not always, in association with provincial or federal government support. This fonds includes the activity records of some, but not all, of these organizations, their evolution and, in some cases, demise.
Scope and Content
The documents in this fonds go well beyond the scope of the Waterton Park Community Association which amassed many of them for caretaking purposes. Included are
A partial record of the Waterton School District including lists of students, operational correspondence, financial statements, etc. There are several years where documents are missing but does include the final records when the School District was dissolved in 1995 and its only school, the Waterton Park School, was closed and ownership was transferred to the Waterton Park Community Association for use as a community centre. The school district was operated under provincial government legislation known as the Alberta School Act.
The entire record of the Waterton TV Association from its organization in 1962 to its demise in 1993 and the transfer of its lease on Crandell Mountain to the federal department of Energy Mines and Resources Canada.
A partial record of the Waterton Cultural and Recreation Society from start to finish, ca. 1980 to 1993.
The Waterton Park Community Association, established in 1993 and still in operation (2017). A sub-group of the WPCA also operates the Waterton Lakes National Park golf course under a legally binding 35-year agreement with the Crown which began in the late 1980s.
Photographs from the Beargrass Festival Society which operated as an independent society in Waterton from 1986 to 1997. This group organized an annual event once each summer to stimulate tourism to the park during the slow weeks in late August. None of the photographs are dated or identified but are grouped into like categories.
The Green Team was funded in 1993 as a separate society which received operating money from the Waterton Park Community Association, Parks Canada and various provincial grants. Its goal was to create an awareness for the need to recycle waste materials in the entire park, not just the townsite. This group was dissolved and recycling, as of 2009, became the responsibility of Parks Canada.
Improvement District No. 4 is the local government within the park which follows the Alberta Municipal Government Act. It is the only provincial taxing authority within the park. The ID, long dormant, was reactivated in the late 1990s and is still in operation (2017). Minutes of meetings are included in this fond.
Assorted but limited documents produced by Parks Canada.
