Morgan the Mys­tic Uni­corn makes home in Delia

The Drumheller Mail - - News - Patrick Ko­lafa

In Hanna, there is the goose, in Drumheller, there is the World’s Largest Di­nosaur, and now Delia has its very own icon, Morgan the Uni­corn.

Dave Smey­ers and Jill McMullen have opened Hand Hills Crafts in the Ar­rawanna School House, built in 1910 on Main Street in Delia. The venue is a com­fort­able place for ar­ti­sans to show their tal­ent and where tourists could visit and maybe find a trea­sure.

Featured in front of the mar­ket is Morgan, a full­sized uni­corn who is rear­ing up on its hind legs. Smey­ers ex­plains the uni­corn is the na­tional an­i­mal of Scot­land re­flect­ing the peo­ple who set­tled in Delia, and it rep­re­sents be­liev­ing in your­self, enough to make your dreams come true.

“We are hop­ing that Mys­tic Morgan will at­tract a few tourists to the town. Drumheller has its di­nosaurs, and now we have a beau­ti­ful uni­corn. We are hop­ing peo­ple drop by to visit Mys­tic Morgan, (per­haps make a wish), have a spe­cialty- cof­fee and check out the mar­ket,” he said.
