County of Camrose is approximately 95 kilometers long, running north to
south, and 60 kilometers wide at it's widest point running west to east.
The Battle river flows through the center of the county. Battle River (
Notikiwin Seppe in Cree) was named after a long time war between the Cree
and Blackfoot bands over the hunting area. Actual documented settlement
of the area wasn't established until about 1881, when Father Beillevaire
was asked to start a mission along the south side of the Battle river.
He named this settlement Duhamel, after Archbishop Duhamel of Ottawa. Metis'
families had begun settlement as early as 1870 in Duhamel and in the valley
of Battle River supplying Fort Edmonton with buffalo meat and supplies
with their RedRiver carts along side their cousins, the Cree and Saulteaux
