The Peace Country Historical Society, in partnership with the Grande Prairie Downtown Association, has installed eight new plaques along 100th Avenue. There are currently twenty-two plaques marking the history of Richmond Avenue and downtown Grande Prairie as part of the Memory Lane centennial project. Thanks to imageDESIGN and SOS Graphics for the great look and installation.
