Settled in the Last Mountain Hills is the friendly town of Strasbourg. The earliest settlers came to this area in 1884 and the area became known for its rich agricultural soil and ample land for pastures.

The town has a rich cultural and historical background, originating with the German pioneers who settled the area.  The town’s name was originally spelled Strassburg – Strass meaning ‘street’ or ‘road’, and Burg meaning ‘town’. The spelling was changed to the French “Strasbourg” in 1919.

In 1905, the rail line was laid as far as Strasbourg which caused the town to grow rapidly over the next two years. The town was incorporated in 1907.

In 2005, the Town of Strasbourg commissioned Michael R. Gaudet to paint a mural depicting life, in Strasbourg, of years past. The mural chronicles various stories of people and places from Strasbourg and area. The mural graces the wall of a local business on Main (Mountain) Street, located across from the Town Office.
