Moose Hill Ranch Residence

The Moose Hill Ranch residence was a dovetailed log cabin constructed in 1885 by Edward Henry Osbourne Vaudin [1,2]. The cabin was continuously occupied until 1979 when its function switched to storage and finally abandoned in 2004 [2]. After the major flooding event in 2013, the land where the cabin was located was purchased as part of the Springbank Off-stream Reservoir Project. Prior to demolition, it was required by the Alberta Ministry of Culture and Status of Woman that the cabin was fully recorded. The work was undertaken by a historical resources team who completed an archaeological excavation and heritage survey of the site.
