A Brief History on a Southern Alberta town called, Strathmore

    Strathmore is a town in southern Alberta, Canada. It is located approximately 60 km east of Calgary along the Trans-Canada Highway. The town was incorporated in 1899 and is named after Lady Strathmore, the wife of the Governor General of Canada at the time.

    The town began as a stopover for travellers on the Calgary-Edmonton Trail, and later became an important agricultural centre in the region. Today, Strathmore is a bedroom community for Calgary and a popular destination for recreation and tourism.

    Some of the town’s notable attractions include Strathmore Golf Club (one of Alberta’s oldest golf courses), Kennerley Ranch (a working ranch with horseback riding and other activities), and Wheatland County Museum (which chronicles the history of the area).

    The town is also home to a number of annual events, including the Strathmore Stampede (a rodeo and chuckwagon race), the Wheatland Music Festival, and the Strathmore Agricultural Fair.

    Strathmore is a welcoming and friendly community with a rich history.
