A welcoming community located at the intersection of Highway 3 and 5, Cartwright dates back to the late 1800s. The Clay Banks were used in the early days as a buffalo drop.
Cartwright was moved to its current location in 1885 to bring the town to rest along new Canadian Pacific Railway line that was being built across the prairies.
