Something that just took off in Strathmore could be coming to the Drumheller Valley.
"They were talking about an app and this app is called 'On This Spot'. What you can do is you have a pin set, you know I think we have 139 different mine sites in Drumheller and so you set the pin, look to whatever directions there are, push the app and we've pre-loaded all the pictures of what it looked like 100 years ago. You can see exactly what happened on this spot back in the day. It just really speaks of Drumheller," explained Drumheller's Mayor Terry Yemen.
Unfortunately, it's not that simple of going and just purchasing the app.
"There's a process because you of course have to download the pictures and things like that. Strathmore was successful in getting a grant to help with that, so our economic team of development will look to see if there's any grant money left and see if we can get one of these app's for Drumheller. I think this would be just outstanding," outlined Yemen.
"We've got so much history here and this is an opportunity for people to come in to see what it used to be like."
