The community of Colchester was founded in the 1890s as settlers were drawn to the area by the ready availability of affordable land. The area was officially declared open for settlement in 1894 with land valued at three dollars an acre. Early pioneers were of many nationalities including Irish, English, American, Russian, Polish and German. At the time the land was heavily treed and had to be cleared, first by hand with axes and later with oxen and plows. It was then seeded with crops such as oats and wheat, which were hauled to Edmonton and ground into oatmeal and flour. (more)
