Beaumont Alberta, originally a French farming community is now a city in Leduc County a few minutes south of Edmonton along Highway 625. The downtown core in Beaumont still resembles a French village with unique architecture and red brick walkways on which the St. Vital Church was built near the turn of the nineteenth century. Today, when driving through the city of Beaumont, you will note printed signage is in both English and French including every stop sign.
