See The Sights

Claresholm is the ideal location to soak in Southern Alberta history while also being able to branch out to numerous regional attractions from Waterton Lakes National Park to the south and the Calgary Stampede to the north. Be sure to start with the Claresholm & District Museum and Visitor Information Centre to explore their unique displays and get all the information you need to navigate the beauty and history of the area.

The Harvard Memorial

With Much Thanks to Bill Erickson & Friends

The Harvard Memorial, erected in 1998 as a special project driven by local resident Bill Erickson and friends, is located in Centennial Park (View Map), and commemorates the pilots who trained here and the personnel who were stationed in Claresholm in the 1950s as part of the NATO training program. Many of the young student pilots who learned to fly at Claresholm did so in a yellow Harvard like the one on display.
