Canadian Energy Museum: Home of Leduc #1
Visit the site of the original Leduc #1 well, the well that sent Alberta's oil economy skyrocketing, and learn about Canadian energy sectors today!
February 13th, 1947 was a cold day. Hundreds of locals showed up to witness the making of history: teachers drove out with buses full of school children, local farmers and politicians, journalists, and government officials arrived excitedly. The event proved anti-climactic, however, as equipment failed and froze. People waited outside. Some grew impatient and left, so by 3:55p.m. when the flare line was lit, many obersvers had left the premises. Never the less, Leduc #1 changed the course of Alberta's economic future. The well signified prosperity and is the reason the Canadian Energy Museum exists today. We continue to celebrate Canada's relationship with energy, past, present, and future.
