Rocky Mountain House

Rocky Mountain House is a town in west-central Alberta, Canada, at the confluence of the Clearwater and North Saskatchewan Rivers.

Rocky Mountain House is a crossroads between a significant north-south artery, Highway 22 (Cowboy Trail) and east-west on Highway 11 (David Thompson Highway) between the City of Red Deer, Alberta and Jasper National Park and Banff National Park. Spectacular natural scenery with the nearby Rocky Mountains as a backdrop draws tourists and new residents alike. Currently a hub of petroleum transportation, local employment has spiked with the bulk of jobs involving oil and gas production.

Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site, visitors can learn more about a time, when 200 years ago the North West and Hudson’s Bay companies set up rival posts at the end of the fur trade line on the North Saskatchewan River. Competition for trade was fierce. During 76 years of operation, nine different Aboriginal groups came here to trade. Explorer, fur trader and mapmaker, David Thompson used Rocky Mountain House as a base for finding a pass across the Rocky Mountains.
