Okotoks - The Eldorado of South Alberta

In 1907, the Okotoks Board of Trade published a 46-page brochure entitled "Okotoks -The Eldorado of South Alberta." The brochure's intent was to encourage residential and commercial development in the town, boldly extolling the unlimited potential that existed in Okotoks and the surrounding district. 

This brochure forms the basis of the museum's summer exhibit, utilizing text and photographs to capture what Okotoks was like in 1907. Artifacts from that era will also be featured.
