Nordegg is a hamlet in west-central Alberta, Canada within Clearwater County. It is located in the North Saskatchewan River valley in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, at the crossroads of David Thompson Highway and the Highway 734 spur of the Bighorn Highway.HistoryIn 1907 Martin Nordegg of the German Development Company, working with D.B. Dowling of the Geological Survey of Canada, staked claims covering coal deposits near the Brazeau and North Saskatchewan Rivers. At Nordegg's urging, Brazeau Collieries Ltd. was founded to exploit them, and the Canadian Northern Railway (which later became part of the Canadian National Railway) agreed to build a rail line to the northern part of the area. This led to the founding of the coal-mining town that was named after Nordegg (the name probably means "North Corner" in a German dialect).A small camp was established at the future townsite in 1911, coal production began in earnest in 1912, and the rail line, known as the Brazeau Branch, arrived at the town in 1913. In 1914 World War I broke out, German assets in Canada were frozen, and in the summer of 1915 Martin Nordegg was asked to leave Canada and he departed for New York. He was allowed to return in 1921, but he had lost his position with the mine. He never lost interest in the town that he had helped plan, however.
