Tireless preservationalist Judith Ann Carleton, of Blackfalds, has won provincial recognition for her historical work.

Carleton was among the Albertan citizens who received Outstanding Achievement Awards on Friday from Alberta Culture Minister Heather Klimchuk.

Among Carleton’s accomplishments is the publication of two books — What if You Were a Pioneer in Blackfalds? and Blackfalds Recollections, about the history of the area.

She also helped found the Blackfalds and Area Historical Society and established the archives where local history is collected, preserved and made available to the public.

As well, Carleton spearheaded the preservation of a collection of important military uniforms and artifacts and the restoration of the oldest headstone in the Blackfalds cemetery.

Her latest project is a Veteran’s Memorial construction project with the town.

Among the other winners recognized at the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation Heritage Awards on Friday in Edmonton was the Lacombe and District Historical Society, and the City of Lacombe, for its work on a multi-phased heritage management program.
