St. Albert's Mission Hill is home to the Father Lacombe Chapel, Alberta’s oldest surviving building, built in 1861. Father Albert Lacombe and the Métis constructed a log building to serve the new St. Albert Roman Catholic Mission, which became the centre of the thriving French speaking Metis settlement of St. Albert. Today the chapel has been restored to look much as it did in the early 1860s.
