Welcome to the Village of Nampa
The history of our community dates back to 1916 when “Pa” Christian filed the first homestead in the Nampa area. Soon after, the East Dunvegan and B.C. Railway built a line through this part of the Peace Region. In 1921, the Village formally became Nampa – an Indigenous word meaning “The Place”.
Once Nampa was established, businesses began to move into the community. The construction of a hotel, a general store and post office were approved.
The growth of the Village of Nampa has been, and continues to be, closely involved with agriculture. Nampa has long been a farming community driven by the hard work and dedication by the people of the Village and its surrounding area.
The residents of The Village of Nampa and surrounding area would like to extend a warm invitation to have you visit our community in the central Peace Region of Northwestern Alberta. The warm and friendly hospitality of The Village of Nampa will ensure that your stay is enjoyable.
The Village of Nampa is an important regional service centre and an active agricultural community situated in Northern Sunrise County. Tourism is an integral part of its economy.
Nearby, the scenic Heart River Valley provides a beautiful setting as well as a natural recreation area for its residents and visitors alike. The Heart River Golf Course provides a challenging nine-hole course. As well, nearby Harmon Valley Park has day use and overnight camping facilities.
The Village boasts a number of public parks, a tourism information centre and a museum. The Nampa Recreation Centre is a multi-use facility that enables the Village and surrounding area to hold a number of special events throughout the year.
