Stephan G. Stephansson – Poet of the Rocky Mountains – was born in Iceland in 1853.
In 1889, he brought his family to Alberta near what is now the Markerville area. Within the view of the Rockies, he homesteaded with his family, farming by day and writing by night. Stephansson’s prolific literary output has helped make him one of the greatest poets in the western world.
Stephansson’s home is a snapshot in time. With costumed interpreters helping bring this story to life, you’ll find beautiful original furnishings, a wood burning stove, newspaper wallpaper, serene landscape, the smell of baking, and, of course, the poetry of Stephansson himself.
