Welcome to Fort Macleod!

Few places can transport visitors back in time like Fort Macleod. In fact, this historic town, which is located only an hour's drive east of the Rocky Mountains, has been designated a provincial historic area by the Government of Alberta. It's easy to see why while strolling through downtown, home to attractions like the Empress, Alberta's oldest operating theatre, and the Fort Museum, a former Northwest Mounted Police outpost that today showcases Alberta's past through a series of displays and exhibits. Fort Macleod provides access to Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, a UNESCO World heritage Site that honours the amazing history of the Blackfoot Aboriginals who dominated this land for hundreds of years. Golfers can play the oldest golf course in Western Canada, which is situated amidst a landscape of foothills and grasslands. Fort Macleod's location, 165 km (102 mi) south of Calgary and 51 km (32 mi) km west of Lethbridge, makes it an easily accessible distraction from Alberta's urban bustle.
