CRYSTAL SPRINGS - CANADA150

*Please BYOP* You are looking for a nano magnetic container

Around 1860, a small Catholic mission was established, along the Carlton Trail between Winnipeg and Edmonton. The mission served mainly Métis and French-Canadian families. At the time, the mission was called Bonne Eau (Good Water), from which the current name of the village of Crystal Springs was derived.

This was quite a modest mission. The church was built of logs and there were not more than five buildings. In 1902, the authorities decided to move the church to Bonne Madone to better serve the population.

The village of Crystal Springs was created in 1929 when the railway arrived in the area.

C’est aux alentours de 1860 qu’une petite mission catholique s’établit le long de la piste Carlton qui relie Winnipeg et Edmonton. La mission desservait surtout des familles Métisses et Canadiennes-Françaises. À l’époque, la mission se nomme Bonne Eau, d’où le nom du village de Crystal Springs tirera ses origines actuelles.

La mission est assez modeste. L’église est construite en bois rond et possède tout au plus cinq bâtiments. En 1902, les autorités décident de déménager l’église à Bonne Madone afin de mieux desservir la population.

Le village de Crystal Springs verra le jour en 1929, lors de l’arrivée du chemin de fer dans la région.
