One moment please...

Alberta Main Street’s Equitable Placemaking Historical Markers Outreach Project seeks to collect stories that document the history of the African American community on Alberta Street. Stories will be included on the Alberta Main Street website, and selected story(ies) will inform the creation of historical and cultural markers to be installed on Alberta Street between NE 10th – 31st Avenues.

All stories are welcome and, with consent from the story teller, will be made publicly available on the Alberta Main Street website. We are particularly interested in the following:

  • Stories from current or former King, Vernon, Sabin or Concordia residents whose lives and families have been impacted by social and economic changes in the area.
  • Stories about historically significant events on or impacting Alberta Street.
  • Stories that recollect a personally significant event or experience on Alberta Street.
