The mandate of the Pincher Creek & District Historical Society is to preserve & promote the history of southwestern Alberta, divided into seven time periods from the very earliest times up to the present day.  Geographically, we collect materials from the community of Pincher Creek as well as its trading area which roughly includes the Municipal District of Pincher Creek.  Such rural villages, hamlets & settlements as Beaver Mines, Burmis, Cowley, Fishburn, Mountain Mill, Pincher Station and Twin Butte as well as the forty-one rural school districts are included as are the southern portions of the Porcupine Hills, the Castle River watershed to the west, and Waterton Lakes National Park to the south.  Our archives, rich in historical reading & research sources, reflect that mandate.
