Stony Plain History
Stony Plain began as a small settlement whose original location was 3 km south of today's Stony Plain. German-Russian immigrants moved to the area in 1891 and settled a few kilometres north of present-day Stony Plain. In 1892, the town's name was changed from Dogump Creek to Stony Plain. In 1905, the Canadian Northern Railway arrived in the area but was situated north of the original settlement. This resulted in the town's few buildings being moved to the railway's location.
