Located Along The TransCanada Highway
Have you ever been driving between Morley and Canmore in Alberta, and noticed Fort Chiniki gas station? Sure you have. It’s the abandoned gas station covered in graffiti, just off the TransCanada Highway by Seebe. It’s on the south side of the eastbound lane, just on the edge, but within the Stoney Nakoda reserve, a short drive from the Stoney Nakoda Resort & Casino. I have not been able to find any information on when it opened, or when it closed, who owned it, what was sold and which services they offered. Jenkies!
In addition to pumping gas, they also used to have a go-kart track, just off to the side of the gas station. It has since been turned into a skateboarding park of sorts, as has the inside of the building. People have actually created skate ramps inside, see below.
Did You Ever Stop Here?
If anyone has any information about this place, please by all means drop it in the comments! What was inside? Who ran it? What food did they serve in the restaurant? So many questions!
How you get there depends on the direction you’re coming from. It’s coordinates are 51.092640, -115.046252.
