Where the Wagons Rolled to Rest

In 1887, Charles Ora Card led one of the last wagon train migrations of the century from Utah to the Lee Creek Valley where they established a new settlement with his namesake. This group of pioneers brought a new method of irrigation to the land that transformed the arid prairies into productive farmland. Today, Cardston is the business hub for farming and ranching in the Southern most corner of the province, and home of the magnificent Cardston Alberta Temple, built by the pioneer settlers.
