Whitecourt is a town in central Alberta, Canada within Woodlands County. It is located approximately 177km northwest of Edmonton and 279km southeast of Grande Prairie at the junction of Highway 43 and Highway 32, and has an elevation of 690m. The Whitecourt meteor impact crater is found on nearby Whitecourt Mountain.Whitecourt is also located at the confluence of four waterways – the Athabasca River, McLeod River, Sakwatamau River and Beaver Creek. A Canadian National rail line runs through the town.The Town has branded itself as the Snowmobile Capital of Alberta and its motto is Let's Go....HistoryThe community was formed in the place known by the Cree as Sagitawah (the place where the rivers meet). While the first Hudson's Bay Company trading post was established in 1897, the first permanent resident on the present day town site was John Goodwin, who settled here in 1905. In 1910, with the expansion of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, immigrants were encouraged by Premier Arthur Lewis Sifton to settle in the vast scarcely inhabited area between Edmonton and the Peace River Country. The name "Whitecourt" was chosen in 1910 by Walter White, the postmaster of the young community. White was the son-in-law of former Kansas governor John W. Leedy who also settled in the community.
