The Sexsmith & District Museum Society

On April 16, 1977, an organizational meeting convened at Teepee Creek, bringing together individuals keen on documenting the rich history of the region. Spearheading this effort was the Sexsmith to the Smoky Historical Society, which sought to compile a comprehensive history book. Drawing upon the wisdom of senior citizens from Sexsmith and Teepee Creek, the society enlisted them as directors. Officially incorporated on April 7, 1978, under the name "Sexsmith to the Smoky Historical Society," the organization embarked on a mission to gather narratives from current and former residents alike. Their collective efforts culminated in the publication of "Wagon Trails Grown Over" in 1980. Subsequently, in 1988, the society underwent a name change, adopting the title "Sexsmith & District Museum Society."
