Tie Camps in Edson

The railways’ race to west created a large influx of settlers in the western provinces, pressuring the government for railway access

in the early 1900s.

 

The need for railway ties in

western Canada continued

well into the 1900s, and as a

result, many tie camps appeared both in Alberta and across the country, following the railway lines.
