Town of Lamont ( recreation grounds )

Lamont is a town in central Alberta, Canada. It is located 60 kilometres (37 mi) east of Edmonton at the junction of Highway 15 and Highway 831.

The town of Lamont was described by settlers as “the nicest open country a person could wish for.” Today it is a progressive community that provides the quiet and tranquillity of the country with most amenities of a larger centre.

HISTORY
The earliest settlers to the area arrived from Ontario in 1892. The Bloomfield School sitting on the present site of Lamont Elementary opened for class in 1902. By 1905, CN Rail was surveying the town site and right of way. The settlement was named for a member of the Supreme Court of Canada., the Honourable Mr. Justice Lamont. The earliest church services were held in log cabins and school houses with the first Lamont Church opening in 1906.
