Woolford is a hamlet in southern Alberta, Canada within Cardston County. It is located on Highway 503, approximately 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) southeast of Cardston between the St. Mary River and the Milk River Ridge. It is named after Thomas Woolford who came to the area in 1900.
Woolford Flat is located one mile northeast of present day Woolford on highway 503. The Canadian Pacific Railway built a subdivision from Raley to Whiskey Gap in 1910 bypassing original town site of Woolford leaving the settlement stranded from any railway services. The community was then divided into two town sites. The original town site became "Woolford Flat" and the new town site placed along the railway kept the old name "Woolford".
Woolford Flat consisted of the school house, the L.D.S. Church and three private residences.
