Didsbury, Alberta derived its name from the Town of Didsbury in Manchester, England.
Like many settlements in the early west, Didsbury grew along the tracks of the Canadian Pacific Railway. A frontier-style business street was developed, impressive centres of worship erected, and eventually our own park and bandstand. We take our motto, "Building a strong future on a solid past" to heart, and are very proud of our history.
The Didsbury Museum, situated in the Town of Didsbury, has been established to tell the story of the founding, settlement and development of the community in and surrounding the Town of Didsbury from the late 1800's to the present.
