The town is rich in history that dates back to the 18th century when British and Canadian fur traders from the Hudson's Bay Company and the North West Company established the Rocky Mountain House and Acton House fur trading posts in 1799. Although established as fur trading posts, they served as a base for exploration. David Thompson, the famous explorer, surveyor and geographer spent several years here searching for a passage west to the Pacific Ocean. This history has been preserved in a historic site at the Rocky Mountain House National Historic Park

Today, Rocky Mountain House has a population of close to 7,000 and is a major crossroads between north-south travel on the Cowboy Trail (Highway #22) and east-west on the David Thompson Highway (Highway #11) between the City of Red Deer and Jasper National Park and Banff National Park. Visitors are drawn to the area by the spectacular natural scenery of the nearby Rocky Mountains and outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities.
