During our annual anniversary camping weekend in Jasper we visited the Ewan and Madeline Moberly Homestead. This historical site is located about 20 kilometres north of the Jasper Townsite on the Celestine Lake Road. In the early 1900s, this family was one of several that lived off the land in the Athabasca Valley in what is now Jasper National Park. The original house still sits at its original location, and a few years ago some work was completed to the roof to keep the building from falling apart.

It's a very neat experience to visit a structure built a hundred years ago that housed one of the first families living in Jasper.
