A Tough Pill to Swallow
Sundre Pioneer Village Museum
Sundre , Alberta


   Sundre, Alberta, is a well-
established community of 2500
people located on the edge of
the Rocky Mountains. Today,
residents of Sundre, situated
120 kilometres northwest of
Calgary, and 100 kilometres
southeast of Red Deer, can
reach either of these
communities in an hour.

However, for many years,
Sundre was a remote community
that functioned as a regional
service centre to a large
isolated area. By choosing to
live in Sundre and its
surrounding area, individuals
were choosing a rural
lifestyle in a spectacular
natural setting. This

lifestyle came with a price
that, for many years,
included limited access to
medical services. Through the
use of images and some
textual material, this
exhibit traces the
development of medical
services in Sundre, from
their very limited beginnings

to the present.
