Other Information

Eagle Hill is an unincorporated community southwest of Innisfail [1]. The nearby hill for which the community and PNT are named is reported to be the highest point between Calgary and Edmonton. Eagles nesting in this location was the reputed inspiration for the name [2] although a forest fire in 1898 disrupted this pattern and the eagles were said to have disappeared [3].
