Cranbrook was ESTABLISHED IN 1898 and incorporated as a city in 1905. It now has a population of over 22,000 residents.

Located in the southeast corner of British Columbia, Cranbrook sits on the west side of the Kootenay River, in the traditional territory of the Ktunaxa people.

The Ktunaxa people have occupied the East Kootenay region of south east BC for more than 15,000 YEARS.

Colonel James Baker named the city after his hometown in Kent, England.

In 1898, Colonel Baker convinced CANADIAN PACIFIC RAILWAY to route their new line through Cranbrook, rather than nearby Fort Steele. That decision was pivotal in Cranbrook’s history, establishing it as the major centre of the region.

Environment Canada reports Cranbrook as having the MOST SUNSHINE HOURS OF ANY BC CITY, at 2229 hours annually.

Major industries include mining, forestry, government services, commercial trade, tourism, healthcare and advanced education.

18 current or former NHL HOCKEY PLAYERS and coaches have Cranbrook roots.

A M E S S A G E F R O M L E E P R AT T, M AY O R O F C R A N B R O O K Hello, I am Lee Pratt, mayor of Cranbrook and I am proud to welcome you to our city. Situated in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Cranbrook is a hidden gem that has so much to offer. The four distinct seasons each offer a multitude of outdoor recreational activities to choose from, making the town a mecca for mountain biking, hiking, skiing and golf, to name a few. Surrounded by stunning mountains and rivers, it is also a dream for anglers and wildlife enthusiasts. Cranbrook is the main shopping centre of the region offering retail options from small mom-and-pop operations to larger national stores. We also boast great accommodation and dining for all palates and budgets. The community is blessed to be home to the College of the Rockies and welcomes many students from across the region as well as a large number of international students who flock here for the Rocky Mountain lifestyle.

Ma yor Lee Pra tt

You can learn more about Cranbrook’s history at the Cranbrook History Centre and the Canadian Museum of Rail Travel. Culture vultures can take in the delights of the Key City Theatre and Studio Stage Door, both of which have regular productions - or if hockey is your thing, spend an evening cheering on the Cranbrook Bucks at Western Financial Place.

ʔakisqakⱡiʔit (ah-kiss-gakth-lee-it), the place “where the two creeks meet”, is central to the Rocky Mountain Trench in the Kootenay region of southeastern British Columbia, a place the ʔaq’amnik people call home. A place now known as Cranbrook.

DID YOU KNOW? THE KTUNAXA L A N G U A G E I S A L A N G U A G E I S O L AT E , M E A N I N G T H AT I T I S L I N G U I S T I C A L LY U N I Q U E A N D U N R E L AT E D T O A N Y O T H E R L A N G U A G E I N T H E W O R L D.

Cranbrook resides in Ktunaxa ʔamakʔis, the homeland of the Ktunaxa Nation. Scientific evidence has dated Ktunaxa presence as far back as 15,000 years ago. For thousands of years the Ktunaxa people enjoyed the natural bounty of the Kootenay region, seasonally migrating throughout Ktunaxa ʔamakʔis, hunting and gathering. Led by the dignified and respected Chief Isadore, the Ktunaxa people’s lives were changed forever by the challenges brought forth by European settlement in the late 1800s. These included the establishment of a residential school, and federally imposed land policies which eventually lead to the creation of the present day Indian Bands. Today, the four Ktunaxa communities, ʔakisq nuk First Nation, ʔaq’am, ʔakink um asnuq iʔit (Tobacco Plains Indian Band) and yaqan nukiy (Lower Kootenay Band) have worked with great effort to restore their culture and their language. If you visit the St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino, located near ʔaq’am Community nearest Cranbrook, you will witness the strength of the Ktunaxa people. Previously a residential school, and responsible for tearing away their culture and language, it is now one of Canada’s most beautiful destination resorts, 100% owned by the Ktunaxa Nation.

T H E K T U N A X A C R E AT I O N S T O R Y The Ktunaxa people have been in this area since Naⱡmuqȼin fulfilled his prophecy and placed the Ktunaxa people in this area to be the keepers of the land. At that time there was some disturbance caused by a huge water monster known as Yawuʔnik̓, who killed many of the animals. It was decided that Yawuʔnik̓ had to be destroyed. A war party was formed. Yawuʔnik̓ plied the Kootenay (wu·u ʔaqsⱡmaknik ʔakinmituk) and Columbia (Miȼ̓qaqas) River System. When Yawuʔnik̓ was killed, and butchered and distributed among the animals, Yawuʔnik̓’s ribs were scattered throughout the region that now form the Hoodoos seen throughout the region.   When the prophecy was fulfilled the spirit animals ascended above and are now the guiding spirits of the Ktunaxa.  In all the excitement Naⱡmuqȼin rose to his feet and stood upright hitting his head on the ceiling of the sky. He knocked himself dead. His feet went northward and is today known as Ya·kⱡiki, in the Yellowhead Pass vicinity.   Naⱡmuqȼin’s head is near Yellowstone Park in the State of Montana. His body forms the Rocky Mountains.  www.ktunaxa.org/who-we-are/creation-story/

E A R LY S E T T L E R S 1807 The first European settlers arrived in the region, including David Thompson, a fur trader and map-making explorer, who crossed the Rocky Mountains to explore the area.

1863 Gold was discovered nearby, and the

gold rush began. Some 5,000 men rushed to the region to pan and prosper.

1883 Col. James Baker bought most of the

current townsite. Baker named his property “Cranbrook” after his home in Kent, England.

Mounted Police arrived to address conflicts between Col. James Baker and the Ktunaxa people.

1898 A typhoid outbreak prompted the

community to build the first hospital at St. Eugene Mission. The hospital was outgrown, built again and then one more time outgrown before relocating in 1901 to a larger facility in Cranbrook, also renamed the St. Eugene Mission.

1905 Cranbrook was incorporated as a city, with a population of 2000. It had water, a sewer, and a telephone system built by local businessmen.

1940 The population of Cranbrook had

grown to 3000. Few places in the world were untouched by the horrors of WW2, and Cranbrook pays tribute to its fallen heros on the Wall Of Honour in Rotary Park.

Widely considered to be the most elegant public venue in southeastern BC, the R O YA L A L E X A N D R A H A L L began its life in Winnipeg in 1906, as part of the Royal Alexandra Hotel. When the hotel was demolished in 1971, its ballroom was carefully disassembled and stored until it was acquired by the Cranbrook History Centre, reconstructed and then reopened in Cranbrook in 2004.

Located at 11-11th Avenue South, the S T U D I O & S TA G E D O O R was built in 1909, and originally served as Cranbrook Freemason’s Masonic Lodge, and is now home to Cranbrook Community Theatre. Just down from the Studio & Stage Door, you’ll find F I R E H A L L N O.1 . Cranbrook’s original fire hall was established in 1929 and served the City until 2011. In 2017, two friends transformed the dilapidated old fire hall into a unique craft beer tap house and gastropub, injecting life back into the old building while remaining sensitive to its heritage.

Established in 1910 and originally named the Kootenay Indian Residential School, the S T. E U G E N E M I S S I O N holds a dark history for the Ktunaxa people. The only project in Canada where an icon of such repression has been transformed into an ambitious and successful economic venture, the renovated old mission is now the St Eugene Golf Resort and Casino. The project has preserved wonderful original architectural features, and simultaneously recognises the sad and difficult cultural legacy and shining future potential of the site. Since its gold rush beginnings in 1864, F O R T S T E E L E has gone from boomtown to regional centre, to ghost town, to one of the most important heritage attractions of its kind in British Columbia. In 1961, after a public petition to the Provincial Government, Fort Steele was declared an historic

Perched on the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains, Fort Steele is a dynamic living history museum, and attracts over 80,000 visitors a year to witness first hand what life was like in days gone by.

At 2229 H O U R S A N N U A L LY , Cranbrook has the most sunshine hours of any city in BC. This means the valley is usually clear of winter snow early in the season creating a cyclist’s Utopia. Riders here get a head start compared to surrounding areas. With the relatively dry climate and the fast draining soil, the trails come into condition while the snow is still deep on the surrounding peaks. Quick and easy access to the Cranbrook Community Forest, South Star Trails, Northstar Rails to Trails, and the Chief Isadore Trail means the Cranbrook area has something for every rider.

Mount Baker, home of the “ B A K E R T R A I L” , is a local favorite. The 1100m descent winds its way down the west ridge of Mt. Baker from the summit to valley bottom.

TOP 3 CRAGS FOR BEGINNERS S T. M A R Y One of the most accessible crags with two tiers. Located on the north side of St.Mary Lake the cliff is visible from the road and only a 30 second approach from the roadside pullout.

LUMBERTON Another great crag for beginners. From Cranbrook head towards Moyie and turn right onto Lumberton road, follow the dirt road for 6km until you reach a lake with a beaver dam on the right-hand side, climbing can be found on both sides of the road.

T O P T I P : Be aware in spring that ticks may be present so always check yourself after finishing a day of climbing.

PERRY CREEK A great local crag with climbs ranging from 5.65.13. Leave Cranbrook on King Street, following the road until the Wycliff/Perry Creek Junction. Take Perry Creek Road 11km staying left at all forks, there is a pullout and signage marking the crag. I 22 I cranbrooktourism.com Photo By: Drew Leiterman

Choose from cliff jumping in glacial springs, swimming in warm lakes, paddling leisurely along meandering rivers or full-on white water rafting. The good news is, that in the height of the summer sun, you don’t even have to leave town to get wet. Grab an ice cream and head to your choice of spray parks; located in downtown Cranbrook at Rotary Park, or the Kinsmen Spray Park near the College of the Rockies. You can also M A K E A S P L A S H at the waterslide, rope swing, hot tub, sauna and steam room at Cranbrook’s Western Financial Place. If a leisurely K AYA K O R PA D D L E B O A R D exploration is more your style, there is an abundance of choice waiting for you. Wasa Lake is a large lake located north of Cranbrook, where you can enjoy vistas of alpine forests and mountain peaks whilst chilling on the beach or exploring on a paddleboard. For camping, kayaking, non-motorised boat launch and excellent fishing all in one stunning location, check out Norbury and Peckham’s Lakes located in the Fort Steele area. As well as an I N C R E D I B L E

S N O W S H O E I N G trails can be found within the city and all around the greater Cranbrook area. For a wide variety of terrain, check out the Cranbrook Community Forest, and South Star Trails - there is something for everyone from family outings to hardcore snowshoeing expeditionists looking to cover longer distances.

If you travel south of Cranbrook you will find the glorious Gold Creek trails which wind their way through snow-covered stands of western larch and lodgepole pine. The non-motorised,

Biking doesn’t have to stop when the snow arrives; Cranbrook is a true FAT B I K I N G destination with a network of 70km of groomed singletrack in the South Star and Community Forest trail networks.

The South Star Recreation Society maintains the trails through countless volunteer hours of designing, fundraising and constructing the fantastic facilities for all users.

You can find out more about both of these areas at: southstartrails.com cranbrookcommunityforest.com
