Kneehill County was formed in 1944, when the individual districts of Stauffer #309, Norquay #279, Ghostpine #308 and Carbon #278 were dissolved to create the MD of Kneehill #278. (#278 was later changed to #48 in March 1945.) The first meeting of the newly organized MD of Kneehill was held March 7, 1944, 75 years ago.
It’s a big year, and Kneehill County is planning some big things to commemorate the 75th Anniversary, with plenty of opportunities for the public to get involved and share their stories, memories, and photos with us!
Stop by the Kneehill County office to see the historical display in the front lobby, full of local area history books and memorabilia.
Make sure to save the date, September 13, 2019, for the 75th Anniversary Celebration. (More details coming soon, keep an eye out for your invitation in the mail!)
Check Kneehill County’s website, social media, and the Three Hills Capital often for more exciting announcements, events and ways to get involved in 2019!
