Claresholm Travel Guide
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.
This museum displays and preserves all sorts of artifacts relating to the Appaloosa breed of horses, including photographs, documents, books and more.
