Nanton  


Pioneers first settled in the Mosquito Creek Community (Nanton area) in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. On June 22, 1903, a village was formed and named Nanton, after the late Sir Augustus Nanton. Sir Augustus Nanton was a partner in the financial firm, Osler, Hammond and Nanton of Ontario and was sent by the firm to the west to investigate investment in farm mortgages. Renowned for his sound judgment, he became a director for many companies, including the Canadian Pacific Railway, Hudson’s Bay Company, Great West Life and the Dominion Bank. He arranged financing of the Calgary and Edmonton Railway, sold subsequently to the C.P.R. It was his close association with these two companies that led the community to name the village, “Nanton”. Nanton was incorporated as a Town in the summer of 1907. Nestled between the breathtaking beauty of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains and a spacious prairie landscape, Nanton and area offers small town charm, safety and opportunity. The Town is located just 40 minutes south of Calgary, one of Canada’s major and most modern cities. It is linked to its trading areas by way of two major highways, #2 and #533. Highway #2, located within the Town limits, offers direct access to American and provincial markets. Nanton provides a rural lifestyle close to urban facilities and conveniences. On its own, it provides excellent business and lifestyles advantages.
