Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Claresholm is a small community located about midway between Calgary and Lethbridge in southern Alberta, Canada along Highway 2. The town is the seat of the Municipal District of Willow Creek No. 26. One of the Famous Five involved in the Persons Case, Louise McKinney, lived in Claresholm and was elected as the Member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta for the area in the 1917 provincial election. The location was originally a watering stop for steam engines on the Canadian Pacific Railway line along the Macleod Trail. The first settlers arrived in 1902, and the village was established in 1903. Claresholm was incorporated as a town in 1905, the year when Alberta became a province of Canada.show more
