HAMLET OF ROUND HILL

Headshot

The lively hamlet of Round Hill is just a short 30 km commute northeast of Camrose and well worth the drive to visit. Despite its size (just over 120 residents), Round Hill is well known throughout the county as a home for Irving's Farm Fresh, and a recreational place and home of the Round Hill Renaissance Agriculture Foundation (RHRAF), created by the community of Round Hill in 2020.

The RHRAF, with the help of Round Hill School (K-Grade 9), is developing an innovative agricultural learning program, 'Foodscape Project,' to teach and create a sustainable food source within the community. So far, they have planted a food forest, shelter belt, and community garden started compositing and water-capturing programs, built original binzebos, and purchase food from surrounding farms and businesses, teaching kids financial management and having the students help prepare their twice-monthly community meals.

The hamlet received its name from the geographical feature, the round hill near the settlement that provided settlers with a bird’s eye view of the area around them. Originally, the settlement was named Round Lake, to pay tribute to the lake that was at the bottom of the hill. However, because the lake often disappeared in dry years, Round Hill was a more appropriate name.

The community has a school, community centre, a campground, recreational grounds, and Fire Department, and is managed by Camrose County.

It represents the adaptation of nineteenth-century English ideas on Gothic church architecture to the conditions of the frontier regions of Western Canada.
