"Reverend James Nisbet, founder of the Presbyterian mission at Prince Albert in 1866."

"Due to its location on the North Saskatchewan river, Prince Albert had a longer history than most other communities in Saskatchewan. Like other Saskatchewan cities, however, its’ development was affected by the railway. The city suffered a serious set back when the CPR mainline was routed through the southern prairie in the 1880s instead of the northern route. Then as now it serves as a service centre for the agricultural lands to the south and the forests to the north. "
