Since 2007, the Town of High River has been honoured to stand in as the fictional community of Hudson on the popular family drama, Heartland on CBC. Set against the magnificent backdrop of the foothills of southern Alberta, Heartland is regularly filmed in various places around High River, on nearby private-property locations, and on a sound studio just up the highway in Calgary.
As part of the “On Location: Film in the Foothills” exhibit, the Museum of the Highwood celebrates Heartland with a special section of images and props on loan from the popular CBC television series. The display includes images and posters from the first ten seasons, saddles, clothing and Maggie’s Diner memorabilia.

In June 2012, the town and the TV show celebrated their longstanding relationship by officially launching the “High River – Home of Heartland©” tourism brand. Branded merchandise is available to be purchased from the Museum of the Highwood, as well other several other High River businesses.
