The Good Luck Town

Recommended by LANGDON CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

The Community of Langdon became well known as the “Good Luck Town” around 1908, in part due to the lack of deaths in the area over a 25-year period.

Langdon was also located on the horseshoe shaped railway turnaround, adding to the Good Luck Town status. This horseshoe, however, is not very traditional, as it is upside down in appearance, pouring Good Luck to those who reside within the community.

Parade of Garage Sales

Recommended by SEJOHNSTON11

The Parade of Garage Sales is an annual event at the beginning of May that kicks off the garage sale season and is one of the largest in the region.  Some seniors suggest the sale has been taking place in Langdon for forty to fifty years.

Depending on the weather the number of individual sales can range from two hundred to fifty per cent of the houses in Langdon.

Langdon Main Street

Langdon has been home to the critically acclaimed Main Street shopping area for some time — its style replicates the way Langdon buildings looked back in 1908 — it’s seeing new shopping and services, including its first Tim Hortons, plus a Buy-Low Foods grocery store, the hamlet’s first large grocery.

Old Grain Elevators Place

Recommended by DENISE MARIE MCCANN & HOLLY MCKENNA

The grain elevators were one of the crucial details of the Langdon landscape for dozens of years. Langdon used to be on the Canadian Pacific Railway mainline until it was shifted to run through Indus and Carseland on the present-day CP Brooks subdivision. There are no grain elevators here anymore.

We investigated where this place was.

Denise Marie McCann (Langdon, Alberta – The Good Luck Town Facebook group) suggested to add the place of the old elevators to the Langdon map:

I remember playing by that far elevator as a kid. The other two were already gone, but that last one was still there. I remember the day they tore the last one down.

I know the elevator was across from us on the tracks and down a little way. We’re on McCann Street.

Holly McKenna clarified the place:

I also lived on McCann Street. It’s not quite to scale, but this might give you an idea. It was an open field between Twnshp Rd 233B (used to be Railway Ave) and 1 Ave SE for years after the elevators came down.”

When you visit Langdon, I can go to the place to feel the old town’s atmosphere.

P.S. Denise Marie McCann:

Love it! Brings back some great childhood memories of living near the tracks and seeing the trains come and go. Ultimately the last elevator was torn down and the trains stopped rolling through and no there are houses where the track used to be, so this is a nice walk down memory lane. THANKS!”

Langdon Old School

Recommended by BRIE BURNS & CHERYL HARRIS

Langdon currently has two schools – Sarah Thompson Elementary School for students in kindergarten to Grade 5, and Langdon School, which serves students from kindergarten to Grade 9.

But many Langdon residents have nostalgic memories of the old school building next to the main street behind the bottle storage. You can see it practically from the main street.

Many of Alberta’s early historic school buildings are abandoned and deteriorating now. The Alberta Teachers’ Association Magazine creates a visual archive of these houses.
