A town in the Crowsnest Pass area of south-western Alberta, Frank is known only for the disaster which took place in 1903 - the Frank Slide. Frank was founded in 1901, as a mining town. It was built at the base of Turtle Mountain, on the Canadian Pacific railway line from Calgary to Cranbrook. Today Highway 3 runs by the scene. You can still see the debris from the Frank Slide, and the interpretive center is worth visiting. Frank is a ghost town, no one actually lives there anymore.
