Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, APRIL New Residences and Bus! Blocks Rising In High River HIGH HIVER. (HNS) It Is dose to thirty-five years since High River has seen such building ac- tivity at any one lime as in in pro- gress this spring. The town clerk's office is a busy point as town lots are being purchased for building sites. Every day sees some new excavation starting as foundation for a new home. Sot all the houses are new JjuUdings. Quite a number have been purchased in the oil fields and will be transferred to High River as soon as basements are ready. Some of these will have additions built oa. others are at- tractive little bungalows just as they stand. But many new homes are" also being built, "and quite a number of others are nearing com- pletion or recently finished. Some of the new homemakers are men of the services who are taking advantage of the town's offer of free building sites. Others are young married men in business in town who are unable to secure homes by rental and are obliged to build. "There are also some elder- ly people retiring from farms or moving ia from other places, and several citizens have sold old homes with the intention of building sorce- tlsing better.
