Welcome to Claresholm!

In 1891, Canadian Pacific Railway worker John Niblick declared that the area 104km (87mi) south of Calgary and 90km (56mi) north of Lethbridge on Highway 2 was to be called Clare's Home after his beloved wife Clare. The spelling of the town's name has changed slightly to Claresholm, but the old fashioned, community-oriented hospitality of those days remains in this picturesque locale, a spirit which continues to be celebrated on the 2nd weekend of August each year at Claresholm Fair Days. The town of about 3200 people has a selection of attractions, including two museums: the Claresholm Museum which features a collection of items related to Claresholm's past, and the Appaloosa Horse Club of Canada Museum, which has a variety of artifacts dedicated to the Appaloosa breed of horses. This town offers many municipal parks such as Centennial Park which boasts the well-known Harvard memorial, plus many recreational areas outside the town limits that are worth visiting, including the Willow Creek Provincial Park.
