Roy Bird & Dorinda Emery
Roy Bird’s great grandfather William Bird built a flour mill along a creek that the local Cree called Stony. All the parts were imported from England. And people eventually started referring to ‘The Creek that Flowed By Bird’s Mill.’ Thus, Mill Creek. The mill wasn’t too far from where the Muttart Conservatory stands.
The Edmonton and District Historical Society’s new home is in the basement of the Old Timers Cabin. Dorinda Emery, Executive Director of The Northern Alberta Pioneers & Descendants Association, gives us the story of the Old Timers Cabin and NAPDA.
