Go back in time as you learn about why people moved and settled in Crowsnest Pass. Discover old mine ruins, settlements, a cemetery, and mine entrances as we venture towards the ghost town of Lille. Once we finally arrive at Lille, you will understand what makes this place special and you will uncover the hopes and dreams of the early settlers. At Lille, we will give everyone some time to discover the old townsite with a scavenger hunt. Lille is a Provincial Historical Site and many parts of Lille still remain, but it is the stories that make it come alive.
