Canyon Creek was formerly called Georgetown. It takes its present name from the creek that flows through a canyon to the Missouri River. The town, which has had a post office continuously since 1871, now serves as an outpost for the ranches of the Prickly Pear Valley. The general store and filling station is located a few miles northwest of Helena. (from Cheneys Names on the Face of Montana, Mountain Press Publishing Company)

Canyon Creek is just a few miles from Marysville, a former gold camp that is now almost a ghost town. The small community of Marysville has several buildings on the National Historic Register. The Marysville/Austin System Snowmobile Trail, Great Divide Ski Area, Stemple Pass Ski Trail, and Helena National Forest are also nearby.
