Did you know?
The name Okotoks was derived from the Blackfoot First Nation word for rock. Before the European settlers, the First Nation used the Big Rock, the largest glacial erratic in the Foothills Erratic’s Train, located about 7km from town, in order to find the river crossing. As time passed the community began to evolve and grow up around a sawmill that at one time employed over 135 people. The Sawmill has since disappeared, but the building remains and now houses law offices and a French restaurant. There are cultural programs available for all ages to learn about the history of Okotoks in creative ways for entertainment, education and fun.
