Why do we, an unincorporated small private lake community have, or even want, a documented history? The reason is that we believe the Sylvan Lake community, its residents and its history are truly special. We want to reflect on what made this area special and to keep the spirit alive for the years to come. We are proud of where we have been and where we are going. Volunteer efforts of many, residents have shaped the community and continue to keep it alive and keep it so special. So this history is a tribute for all who helped create Sylvan Lake’s past, present and future.
