A Short History of Nemiscam National Park
By E. Matthews, Nemiscam, Alta.
‘After the rangeland South of Bow Island in Alberta and for miles east and west was thrown open to homesteading, the need for some protection of the large number of antelope was apparent, and quickly became an immediate and pressing necessity if the species were to survive.
Most of the ranchers at that time held the antelope almost as sacred as the cow is held in India. One of these was the late Edgar McHugh, owner of the Diamond Cross Ranch on the Chin Coulee.’
