A Century Old Alberta Prairie Farmhouse Redefined
Originally built in 1906 and expanded in 1912, the Bergquist Family home was once a prominent part of the Southern Alberta farming community in early 1900’s and for many decades. Originally located just 2 miles North of what is present day Carseland. (25 minutes NE of High River). It was home to 6 children growing up on 2,000 acres of farmland. Not bad for two immigrants from Sweden and Norway, enticed by the Dominion Lands Act.
After the 3rd generation family descendants sold off the farm in the early 1980’s, this 2,600-sq. ft. historical farmhouse underwent several moves until finding a permanent relocation at Aspen Crossing.
