The Peace River Block was the last agricultural frontier in North America. The Cecil Lake district was among the last areas let out for homesteading.

The Nor' Pioneer W.I. of Cecil Lake is putting together the story of how we developed this last frontier. What began as "bush, bush, and more bush" is now a modern farming community.

A 1930s "schoolbus." The first threshing machine in Cecil Lake was hand-made by Bob Hall. Threshing and other 'big' jobs were community affairs where everyone pitched in. The Spence kids playing on a makeshift teeter-totter.
