Village of Hill Spring

Population: 162 (2016)

Hill Spring enjoys being right in the middle of nowhere, but a half hour from everywhere.

Where the quiet shadows of the Rocky Mountains meet the rolling plains east of Waterton Lakes National Park, the quiet village has ambition. Sixteen acres of municipally-owned land are available to prospective employers. A $2.1 investment in the future has been generated by a new water treatment plant. A general store, a miniature post office and an elementary school comprise Hill Spring's current employment base, with most of its working residents commuting daily to Cardston or Pincher Creek.
Hill Spring is best known for the famous Great Canadian Barn Dance, which features live western
entertainment and dancing, canoeing, camping, and hayrides.
