Deep in the Canadian Badlands of Alberta lies the historical Atlas Coal Mine! A coal mine that dates back to the early 1900s when coal mining was one of the most important sources of energy for home heating, cooking, and electrical generation.
While we loved exploring all the fun things and activities to do in Drumheller and trying out the many different restaurants, we also really enjoyed learning about the history of Drumheller!
