Lundbreck

Lundbreck is a hamlet in southern Alberta within the Municipal District of Pincher Creek. It is situated 4 km west of the Village of Cowley and 16 km west of the Town of Pincher Creek. The town’s name is a combination of “Lund” and “Breckenridge”, after Breckenbridge and Lund Coal Company which operated collieries and sawmills here. Lundbreck was incorporated in 1907. The township started out as a coal mining town, quickly growing to a size of about 1,000 people until the coal mines closed, at which time it quickly shrank. In the 2021 Census of Population conducted by Statistics Canada, Lundbreck had a population of 289. A person of note, judge Valentine Milvain was born near Lundbreck in 1904. Milvain was appointed judge of the Alberta Supreme Court in 1959 and Chief Justice in 1968.
