The town dates from 1909 and the buildings are simple structures from early times. Growth came to an abrupt halt when the railroad 'tore up the tracks', resulting in the grain elevators being removed. In many ways, time has stood still for the town. However, farming is still alive and well. The area has wheat, canola oil and ranching.
1910 - Pioneer times were hard: the land was tough to cultivate, the climate was bitterly cold in the wintertime, a small cabin (22'x15') needed to be built for shelter and the town was just being formed. Most immigrants were drawn from farming areas in central Europe. They were tough people, used to few luxuries.
