Equity, Alberta (The actual hamlet)

Equity, Alberta is located between Three Hills and Trochu on the CN rail line which runs from Camrose to Calgary. This hamlet originally had 3 elevators:

Western Canadian Flour Mills
Alberta Pacific
The elevators were closed sometime in the 1970's, but as you can see from the photo, the siding is still there.

Agricore United has an steel elevator complex named after Equity, which is located about 4 miles south of the hamlet west of Highway 21.
