Located in Canada’s westernmost province, Fort St. John was a boom town in the 1940s. To document its growth, locals Margaret Lally “Ma” and George Murray pioneered the local Alaska Highway News, a newspaper still published to this day. Much of its 75-year archive resides at the Fort St. John North Peace Museum. Visitors can experience history first hand through re-creations such as a newspaper office, blacksmith’s shop, tepee, schoolhouse, and more. The museum’s assets also include land records, maps, genealogical records, photographs, catalogs, and directories.
