Welcome to the Hamlet of Brownvale, located in northern Alberta.
Brownvale Hotel and Bordertown Pub. It was built in the later 1920's, had 10 rooms upstairs for rent and provided entertainment and a gathering spot for many years. One could rent a room for only two cents a night in the 1930's. It finally closed in about 1999. In 2008 the Hotel was demolished.
The Brownvale Community Library was one of the oldest buildings in the hamlet, and was located on 3rd Avenue next to the playground. It was first used in Grimshaw and re-located to Brownvale in the early 1960's. It has been moved to the Lac Cardinal Regional Pioneer Village Museum, located 4km west of Grimshaw (next to Queen Elizabeth Provincial Park)
The Brownvale Community Hall located on the corner of 3rd Street and 3rd Avenue is used for funerals and bake sales.

Figure 8 Lake located 20 km north of Brownvale. Has 19 campsites, group camping, picnic areas, beach, boat launch. (no gas motors) Stocked with rainbow trout. In 1969 this lake was just a slough.
