Pincher Creek, Farm, Alberta, Canada 06

Description : The town received its name in 1868 when a group of prospectors lost a pincer in the small creek at this location. These pincers would have been used as a mechanism for trimming the feet of the horses and thus had some value to the group. It is alleged that for many years afterward, prospectors continued to search for the pincers whenever they passed through this area near the creek.
