History

In 20 August 1856 Father Malsonneuve set out with four men to open a trail from Lac La Biche by way of Sugden, Ste-Lina and St-Vincent. None of these hamlets were named at the time. The trail soon became a route for the hauling of supplies to northern points on the Athabasca River.

The trail winded its way passing east of the present hamlet of Mallaig. The Lac La Biche trail wend its way in a North Westerly direction past a farm owned in 1978 by W. Christensen and North to cross a creek just East of Ste-Lina. A camp was set up for travellers and to water horses before proceeding further.

As white settlers traveled this part of Canada and relayed information back East of the furs and timber in the area the population grew. Surveyors mapped out the land and it was opened to homesteaders for a nominal fee of $10.00 with certain requirements. Ste-Lina was named and became a hamlet as well as Goodridge, Beaver River, Sugden, Boyne Lake Mcrea, and Ashmont.
