Taking its name from the Highwood River which winds its way through town, the site was originally inhabited by the Blackfoot First Nation. With the advent of Treaty Number 7 in 1877, settlers began flowing into the area. High River was officially incorporated as a Town in 1906. Even its frequent flood events have not slowed its steady growth. Today High River celebrates its past with colourful murals throughout town, and it frequently serves as film set for movies and television series.
