The Town of Strathmore began as a hamlet for the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1883 was named after a benefactor Earl of Strathmore. The community started to thrive when in the CP forces manually laid 6.38 miles of track across the prairies to set a record. For a town, this was a significant stretch of track because the day it was completed, it transformed it to the unloading point for thousands of settlers.
In 1905, the irrigation system was developed and the original hamlet of Strathmore was moved four miles north and centered on a 5,600-foot siding. This is what gave the town the legacy of the “Town that Moved.” In order to supply the tourist trains that were travelling to the Rockies, the CPR grew flowers and vegetables to hotel and dining facilities. The CPR ended up leaving Strathmore a legacy – being the irrigation system. It continues to operate today under the management of the Western Irrigation District.
