Public Art In St Albert

St Albert is a city in Alberta, Canada. It was founded in 1861 by Father Albert Lacombe, who built a small chapel on Mission Hill. And no, the town was not named after St Albert the Great (German philosopher and theologian). It was named after Lacombe's name saint; Saint Albert of Louvain. Unfortunately, in 1985 a few amateur historians, believing the city was named after St Albert The Great , published incorrect info which lead to the city promoting him as the community's patron saint. They even erected a statue in his honour. The mistake was only discovered in 2008.
