One of the treasures we recently received from Edith Edge is a calendar from not too long ago. It’s a calendar from Cochrane’s 100th anniversary. Produced by the Centennial Committee assisted by the Town Of Cochrane and CHAPS it contains some fascinating information about our history.
We’ll give an overview here and each month display the calendar from that month on our social media pages.
There are so many changes since 2003. It’s also nice to place what used to exist with what exists now! The Murphy Hotel sat where the Royal Bank is now.
Cochrane became a village in 1903.
1908 A small pox epidemic caused isolation tents to be setup near the river.
1909 Davies house built that became first hospital.
