This project is the result of a partnership of the Heritage Community Foundation with the United Church Historical Society, Alberta and Northwest Conference and the Eleanor Luxton Historical Foundation.

The United Church Historical Society serves to document and preserve the heritage of the United Church of Canada and its antecedents within Alberta.  The Society publishes a historic sites and archives journal to promote knowledge and interest in this heritage.  Along with its concern for the historic mission sites and related scholarship presented on this site, the Society was also a partner in the United Church Artifact Collection Project with the Folklife Program of the Provincial Museum of Alberta. 

Funding support was provided through The Eleanor Luxton Historical Foundation.  The Foundation was established in May 1995 to implement the bequest of Eleanor G. Luxton, the daughter and granddaughter of Banff and Bow Valley pioneers. The objective of the Foundation is to foster public awareness of the history of Banff and its environs during the century that the Luxton and McDougall families were influential in the community, with emphasis on the careers of Norman K. Luxton (1874-1962: Banff newspaperman, entrepreneur and friend of the Stoney people), Georgina McDougall Luxton (1870-1965: artist, gardener and granddaughter of pioneer Methodist missionaries) and Eleanor G. Luxton (1908-1995: teacher, engineer, historian and collector). 

The Heritage Community Foundation would also like to acknowledge and thank the following organizations for their support and contributions to this project:
