First settled by Europeans around 1900, Camrose attracted first pioneers and then settlers and businessman thanks to its proximity to Wetaskiwin, which was then an important location for pioneers. Many of those early settlers came from Scandinavia, a heritage which can still be felt today.
Originally known as Stoney Creek and later Sparling, the settlement received its current name in 1906. The reason for this is not certain, but many believe it is linked to a village named Camrose in South Wales. A few years later, thanks to its location between Edmonton and Calgary, Camrose became something of a railway hub.
