It is located north of the intersection of Highway 66 and Highway 22.HistoryBragg Creek is named after Albert Warren Bragg from Collingwood, Nova Scotia and his 14-year-old brother John Thomas who homesteaded in the area in 1894. The community was established between a forestry reserve, the Sarcee Indian reserve and a Provincial Park. Ranching was the original primary economic generator in Bragg Creek. The economy diversified with the emergence of recreation in the 1920s.Bragg Creek was featured in the feature films Storm (1987) and Killer Image (1992) both directed by David Winning, and also Betrayed (1988) directed by Costa-Gavras.
