Culture & History
Rum running during Prohibition, coal mining disasters, a historic rock slide, a train robbery, and a police shoot-out, lend an exciting history celebrated throughout the South Canadian Rockies. World-class heritage sites, historic walking and driving tours, and interpretive kiosks offer a greater perspective on past events that have shaped our community.
Today, South Canadian Rockies is home to a vibrant artisan scene with numerous studios, a public gallery, and a thriving number of talented musicians. You will find exhibits of local art in many cafes and restaurants throughout the community.
