Pincher Creek

Pincher Creek is a town in the southwest of Alberta, Canada. It is located immediately east of the Canadian Rockies in the centre of ranching country, 50 km north of Waterton Lakes National Park.

Many of Pincher Creek's residents are descendants of its original pioneers, whose industriousness is commemorated at the Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village. The Lebel Mansion Historic Site invites those curious about history inside one of the town's earliest and most attractive homes, and Heritage Acres recreates a 19th century farm.

Just outside of town, the Pincher Creek Hutterite Colony offers a look into a truly unique culture, and also nearby, outdoor activities abound at the Oldman River Dam Provincial Recreation Area, where kites are often flown at Windy Point. “Naturally powerful”, the town is one of Alberta's leaders in wind technology, where huge turbines harness plenty of alternative energy from the ever-active environment.
