Once again, traveling around Alberta is full of surprises. My friend and I took a run through the area NE. of Edmonton on Saturday of the long weekend. I have not been able to find much history on this old garage other than what it says on the front, it appears it was built and established as Beauvallon Motors in 1940. The entire structure is built of stone, although rare in Alberta, appears to be common in this part of the province. We have come across stone homes, school, stores and now this garage. This part of the province has so much European history, typically Ukrainian and Romanian, it is well worth the trip to experience the massive old and new churches, schools and beautiful old homes in communities rather than in towns. I have been in this area several times and it seems every trip has a new experience and surprise in store.
