History
Birth of the Swan City
Soon after the City of Grande Prairie received it's charter in 1958, it was declared the "Home of the Trumpeter Swan". In 1926, a visiting representative of the Canadian Wildlife Service discovered that the swans were nesting in the Grande Prairie area.
Since then, a combination of protective legislation, good wildlife management and co-operation between Canada and the United States has rescued the swan from the endangered list.

The Original City Hall
The original City Hall was shared between the City's Welfare Officer and the Peace Region Planning Commission. Council consisted of a mayor elected for a two-year term and six alderman. The building was destroyed by fire in February 1961 and soon replaced by a newer facility on June 6, 1962.
