Claresholm Community Overview

Claresholm is a small community located about midway between Calgary and Lethbridge in southern Alberta, Canada along Highway 2. One of the Famous Five involved in the Persons Case, Louise McKinney, lived in Claresholm.

The location was originally a watering stop for steam engines on the Canadian Pacific Railway line along the Macleod Trail. The first settlers arrived in 1902, and the village was established in 1903. Claresholm was incorporated as a town in 1905, the year when Alberta became a province of Canada.

In 1913, Alberta established a demonstration farm and School of Agriculture at Claresholm.

Royal Canadian Air Force Station Claresholm was established near the town in 1941 to train pilots for service in World War II. It first opened June 9, 1941 as a British Commonwealth Air Training Plan base. No. 15 Service Flying Training School operated at the base from its opening until March 1945. In 1951, the base was used to train pilots for the Korean War and operated as No. 3 Flight Training School. It also trained NATO pilots. The base closed in 1958 and the hangers were converted to industrial use. A portion of the former base also operated as an industrial airport.
