DescriptionPrince Albert is one of the province's oldest communities. Trapper Peter Pond built a trading post on the north side of the North Saskatchewan River in 1776. The Rev. James Nesbit, credited with founding the town, settled on the south shore in 1866.
The log Presbyterian church that Nisbet built that year stands in Kinsmen Park, on the west side of Central Avenue between 22nd and 28th streets W. A blockhouse next to the church dates from the Northwest Rebellion/Métis Resistance of 1885. The Historical Museum occupies the site of the church built by Nisbet.
