Human occupation in Banff dates back around 11,000 BC. The Native Indians lived in harmony and traded with each other. Things changed during the arrival of the Europeans around 1700 who used force to conquer lands and spread deadly diseases. British explorer James Hector saw the potential in Banff and started the development in 1857.
