About Pincher CreekPincher Creek was established in 1878 by the North West Mounted Police as a horse farm to provide remounts for Fort Macleod. The town was named for a pair of pincers that presumably were left behind by prospectors. After hearing that the area had ample grassland, other settlers soon arrived.
