interpretive display in the Smeltzer House parking lot

Heritage Mile is a section of Broadmoor Boulevard in Sherwood Park that commemorates the early pioneer families who farmed along this once-country-road (Range Road 233) for decades before the hamlet formed in 1955. Dubbed "Heritage Mile" in tribute to Strathcona County’s rural heritage, it marks a connector road between two early settlement communities -- Salisbury district in the south and Clover Bar district to the north. 

Smeltzer House anchors the south end of the heritage roadway that extends north to Baseline Road. Other significant features include the Lendrum Sisters statue and the A.J. Ottewell Community Centre. Heritage Mile was developed by Sherwood Park's Heritage Mile Society, led by John Ashton. 

Now an urban traffic thoroughfare, it retains an intriguing sliver of those early settler days. To learn more about the many features along Sherwood Park's Heritage Mile, check out the interpretive display in the Smeltzer House parking lot, material that is also included in this booklet (12.5 MB)

You can also walk the corridor to find the many features and read the interpretive signs and plaques that tell a bit of the story of the community's yester-year.

An interactive map that features public art in Strathcona County, Art of our County, includes Heritage Mile; watch for Sites 15, 16, 17 and 18.
