In May of 1899, Albert Shaw began farming on a homestead in Assiniboia, NWT, granted to him under the Dominion Land Act of 1897. The farm has been operated continuously by his descendants and is eligible for recognition by the Province of Saskatchewan as a Century Farm. A 100th anniversary celebration of this homestead was held Saturday June 26, 1999. Thirty descendants of Albert and Edith Shaw attended to help mark the occasion.
