Let your historical imagination be sparked by the Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village! Here at
Pincher Creek’s premiere heritage facility, truly you can step back into time. Relive the rustic
vibrant western Canadian frontier from long ago!
Set in our eye catching manicured grounds, our Pioneer Village offers the visitor the
opportunity to relive those glory days from our past. An array of thirty-one historical buildings
awaits your stopover. The structural patriarch is the 1878 NWMP Horse Barn that led to the origins
of Pincher Creek as a settlement. Exhibited in fine fashion is John George “Kootenai” Brown’s
iconic log cabin from nearby Waterton Lakes, two majestic ranch houses dating from the 1880s and
1890s, a couple of quaint country schools, car garages, and a large sweep of old time business
structures established over half a century. Each structure is displayed with a selection of authentic pioneer artifacts which visually recreate those half forgotten stories from bygone days. A thoughtful
selection of educational and entertaining events allows the public to re-visit the past.
The history of the Pincher Creek area is carefully maintained through these exhibits, catalogued
artifacts and extensive archives of old time stories, documents, photographs and reference materials.
Our Country Store retails quality souvenirs, crafts and books for purchase. Come see us soon here
at the Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village!
