ALBREDA, 65 km north of BLUE RIVER on the Yellowhead Hwy (see ROADS AND HWYS) and a station on the CNR, was located on the Albreda R, named by Viscount Milton, an early traveller in BC, for his aunt, Lady Albreda Lyveden. A camp of Japanese internees was established here during WWII to help construct the highway (see JAPANESE, RELOCATION OF). Today all that remains is a pioneer cemetery with a view of Albreda Glacier.
