Life, Work and Leisure in Lesser Slave River

Explorer David Thompson arrived at the mouth of the Lesser Slave River on April 28th, 1799, and was the first white man to see the vast Lesser Slave Lake. Thompson established a townsite thereafter called Sawridge, coming from the sawtoothed appearance of the large sand ridges along the north shoreline of the Lake.
