Founded in 1916 and once home to about one hundred fifty people. The area was hard to farm and that likely doomed the town. That and it is very remote. There are parts of southern Alberta that would have prospered as farmland for the want of irrigation years ago. There are very few residents left here, it is mainly a collection of old and empty buildings. I think one, maybe two houses look occupied. There is a church that is relatively new and was holding a service. A sign on the highway says gas and groceries are available. I drove through and I am not sure where any services were offered.
