What do you know about Harry Adair? How he heard about the Peace Country, we don’t know, but Harry Adair set out from Montana in 1906 with 700 head of horses, assisted only by three women relatives and a few wranglers. He finally arrived here in 1909 and established a 2,200 acre ranch northwest of the fledgling community of Saskatoon Lake. Grande Prairie City wasn’t even a dream then. By 1913, he was seeding 900 acres of crop; and by 1917, 1300 acres, the largest ranch in the Peace Country. His ranch buildings, seen in the photos above, were the center of community life in that area. For the story about that exciting horse drive from Montana to the Grande Prairie, you’ll have to come to the Open Air Play on July 12th!
