The most interesting part about St Paul is that it is home to the first ever UFO landing pad. Oddly enough, the pad was specifically built to lure Martians to the municipality. It’s stated beside the landing pad that “all visitors from earth or otherwise are welcome and safe in this territory and to the Town of St Paul”.
The most notable celebrities you will see coming from this town include Canadian country singer Brett Kissel, who sung last year for the Oilers in the 16-17 Stanley cup playoffs and is a very popular Canadian artist, and Kyle Brodziak. Brodziak is an NHL player currently playing for the St Louis Blues in the NHL and at one point did play for Edmonton.
If you’re looking for a quiet place to get away from the big city, St Paul would be one of the best places in Alberta that you could go. With a population of just over 5000, it’s not the craziest town on earth but it provides all the amenities you could want!
