Leduc #1 Historic Site
We are located at a famous location in the history of the Canadian Oil Patch. In 1947, this was the location where Imperial Oil finally found oil in northern Alberta after a drilling campaign of 133 dry well, and (for the time) a record breaking 22 million dollars. Other locations such as Oil Springs Ontario, in 1854, Titusville, Pennsylvania in 1869, Spindletop, Texas in 1901, and Turner Valley, Alberta in 1914 were notable first finds in North America. The Devonian find was remarkable in that it was the start of the Oil Boom in Alberta, and the event that lead to Alberta Canada being an Energy Exporter. On site you will find a 22000sqft museum that explains the process of oil exploration, extraction, processing and refining. There is also 13 acres of outdoor exhibits. The Discovery Center is worth the visit.
