Rosthern

At the junction between Highway 11 and 312, in the center of Saskatchewan (Canada) is Rosthern, a beautiful town. Saskatoon and Prince Albert are two cities on both sides of this town. Rosthern celebrated its hundredth birthday in 2003. Most of the history of this place has strong ties to the agricultural industry of this region. Just outside this town was where the agronomist, Seager Wheeler, spent a major part of his life as an author and experimental farmer.
How the name of this place came about is still a mystery, but one of the legendary versions is that back in 1880s when the establishment of railroads adjoining Prince Albert and Regina was underway, someone named Ross drowned in a creek flowing through the town. The word “terne” meant “pool” in old English, and this is how the story of the drowning man became the name of the village “Rosthern.” Another version says that homesick workers who returned home brought this name from a village “Rostherne” in the UK.
Some attractions nearby include the Valley Regional Park, Seager Wheeler Farm, Mennonite Heritage Museum (1910), National Historic Site and the Grain Elevator. There are other places to visit as well, and recreational activities like golf, soccer, baseball, swimming and other sports.
