About Millarville

This area is within easy access to the City of Calgary, yet within short driving time to some of the most beautiful recreational areas on earth. The western (cowboy) culture predominates throughout the area and is adopted by many newcomers.

This Hamlet of Millarville got its name from one of the early settlers in this place, Malcolm Tanner Millar.  He came to this area with another early settler, Joseph Fisher about 1885 and opened a trading post and store along with a post office. The First Nations people known as the Stoneys, traveled through this area on foot and horse, on their way from their winter homes out in the Morley area (west of Calgary) to their summer hunting area west of Longview, to what is now the Eden Valley Reserve.

Today the Hamlet has grown to incorporate a new subdivision on the ridge to the north (hidden in the trees) of about twenty-six homes and a development to the immediate east surrounding a man-made lake and known as Millarville Crossing, currently consisting of about a dozen homes.  The hamlet itself is made up of a service station, a general store that houses the post office and a small bank, a small engine repair and sales business, the school which bounds the playing fields and outdoor skating rink, and approximately ten homes.
