[FP, MEDIUM DUE TO THE NAMES]

Other Information

This PNT is scattered across five distinct parcels of land. The northern most two are adjoined. The southern most two are across from each other and separated by the Red Deer River. A very small central site is isolated from the other two. The intervening land between these sites is privately held [1].

James River flows into the Red Deer a few kilometres downstream from this PNT. The river was named for James Dickson, a Stony chief who was a signatory to Treaty 7 in 1877. James Pass, James Lake and possibly James Creek, are also named after Dickson [2]. Highway 22 crosses the river at the unincorporated community of James River Bridge [3].
