About Stony Plain
Stony Plain is known as “The Town with the Painted Past” due to the amount of painted murals in town. The town was originally known as Dog Rump Creek.
The name of the town is believed to have come from one of two possible origins. The first is that the Stoney people camped in the area historically. The second possibility is that Dr. James Hector, a geologist on the Palliser Expedition, noticed boulders scattered across the area. The official name for the settlement was adopted in 1892. Alex McNabb and McPherson were the first homesteaders in the area.
