St. Edmunds Church!

Spring season is also 'soccer' season in our household!  And for a change, the kids are actually enjoying some typical spring weather this week.  On route to Stettler, we pass by the Village of Big Valley, AB.  This quaint village boasts a rich history in ranching, rail, coal and oil!  The community started back in 1907 and the village was established in 1914.  High up on the valley edge, over looking main street, stands the infamous 'blue church!'  St. Edmunds Church was built in 1916.  Although I am certain it did not start out as blue church ... the 'blue on blue' on a beautiful spring day, can be seen miles away!

  1. Its blue because when they had to repaint it, the local hardware store had a sale on blue paint. No joke! And then after that it just stuck!
