Sundance
Sundance is situated on the south side of Lake Wabamun between Goose Quill Bay and Seba Beach. The first people to make their home in Sundance were the Jauncauskie brothers who had been fishermen and boat builders in Denmark. Rafe Gardener was another early homesteader. By 1910 many new settlers were arriving in Sundance. The coal seam at Sundance was originally owned by the Jauncauskie brother and was purchased from them by the Milne brothers from Millet for fifteen hundred dollars per quarter for the three quarters. The obtained mineral claims and intended to strip mine the area. In later years a company from Edmonton opened a strip mine at Sundance.
