Waterways is Fort McMurray’s most historical neighbourhood which began with the fur trade and the railway back in the 20s. Situated along the Clearwater and Hangingstone Rivers, the popular inner-city acreage style living on Draper Road still appeals today.

The Early Days
As railways began to be built across the province in the late 1800s (the Canadian Pacific Railway reached Medicine HatCalgary and Banff in 1882–83) the Alberta government looked to build a railway from Edmonton to Fort McMurray in order to further stimulate resource development. The Alberta and Great Waterways Railway was incorporated in 1909, and after a false start and political mismanagement, broke ground in earnest in 1914. By 1921 the track had reached Deep Creek at the Clearwater River (now the community of Draper). In 1928, the track was further extended to the Hangingstone River and what would become Waterways, now a Fort McMurray neighbourhood (the railway was never extended to Fort McMurray proper). In 1929, the Alberta and Great Waterways Railway became a part of the Northern Alberta Railways.3
