Sagitawa Lookout (Judah Hill)

The Cree named the lookout from where they could see the meeting of the Smoky and Peace Rivers - Sakitawahk (saakitawwahk) – at the mouth of the river – where the rivers meet. The rivers provided a well-travelled pathway for First Nations people, explorers, adventures and homesteaders to the Peace River area. They reached the area on foot and by dog team on the rivers’ frozen waters and by various forms of water craft during the warmer seasons.

Henry Fuller Davis’ gravesite is on a hill overlooking the Smoky, Peace and Heart Rivers. Although he died near what is now Grouard in 1900, at his request his body was moved, about a dozen years later, to its current site by friend Jim Cornwall.
