The hamlet is named for the nearby Lake Louise, which in turn was named after the Princess Louise Caroline Alberta (1848–1939), the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria, and the wife of John Campbell, the 9th Duke of Argyll, who was the Governor General of Canada from 1878 to 1883.  The hamlet was originally called Laggan, and was a station along the Canadian Pacific Railway route.  It was built in 1890.[3] The train station building was preserved and moved into Heritage Park in Calgary.  The hamlet is divided into an upper and lower part.  The lower part is the village.  The Chateau Louise is in the upper part overlooking the lake.

It is a beautiful venue and I have been there many times both in the warmer months and in the winter.  My pictures represent many visits over 30 years.
