History of the Blackfalds & District Chamber of Commerce Online
The Town of Blackfalds was originally named Waghorn and changed its name to Blackfalds in 1903 after a Scottish hamlet.
While the history of chambers of commerce dates back to the 18th century.
Blackfalds Board of Trade Fonds
The Blackfalds Board of Trade was inaugurated in April 1903 in the Village of Blackfalds. It petitioned the federal and provincial governments concerning postal service, road building and other issues. It supported the short-lived newspaper the Blackfalds Mercury published by Percy Gregson (1903-1904).
The Blackfalds Board of Trade appears not to have met in the period 1906-1907. It started up again briefly in 1908-1909; and had dissolved by 1910; Presidents: A. J. Shular (1903, 1905), J. E. Grant (1904), R. A. Shular (1908), L. A. Hill (1909). Secretary-Treasurers: Percy Gregson (1903-1905), and James McNicol (1905-1909).
Records of the Blackfalds Board of Trade were maintained by the organization’s secretary-treasurers. James McNicol maintained the records in his notary office until his retirement in 1917, when he took the records with him. His daughter, Jean Landry, inherited the records, and passed them on to her husband, Ovide Landry.
The fonds consists of the minute book of the Blackfalds Board of Trade (1903-1909).
