History:  

STRATHCONA, a city in section 35 of Deer Township, commemorates Donald Alexander Smith, later Lord Strathcona, who was born in Forres, Scotland, August 6, 1820, and died in London, January 21, 1914. He came to Canada in 1838 in the service of the Hudson's Bay Company; was stationed during 13 years at trading posts on the Labrador coast and later in the Canadian Northwest; was promoted to be resident governor for that company; was one of the principal financial promoters for construction of the transcontinental Canadian Pacific Railway and was a friend of James J. Hill, under whose leadership the Great Northern Railway was built; was during many years a member of the Dominion House of Commons; after 1896 was High Commissioner for Canada in London and in 1897 was raised to the peerage as Baron Strathcona and Mount Royal; was a very generous donor from his great wealth to many institutions of education and charity.

Hans Lerum, postmaster, 1905-41, and his partner, Charlie Gunheim, built the first store in the city in 1904.
