Historic Sites
Coronach is a community in southern Saskatchewan, Canada near the US border. It was founded in 1926 by the Canadian Pacific Railway and named after Coronach, the horse who had just won the Epsom Derby in England that year. Coronach was officially incorporated in 1928.HistoryAfter its incorporation in 1928 the town's population teetered in and around 300, until about 1974 when the town discovered that they were to receive the Poplar River Power Project. This project brought many new citizens to the town to help with the building and operation of the Power Plant. The Poplar River Power Plant can be seen from a distance with the large smoke stack extending above the town. With the Poplar River Power Project also came the development of the Coronach Coal Mine, which provides the coal/fuel to the Power Plant. The Coal mine has had a few locations and a variety of owners; it is currently owned by Westmoreland Coal Company. Many people that visit the area enjoy touring the mine, where they can experience the immense size of the draglines as they dig down to uncover the coal. The coal will eventually be loaded onto the train and hauled over to the Power Plant, which is also a popular site to tour.DemographicsSince the development of the Poplar River Power Station and Coal Mine, along with the Agriculture industry in the area, the population of Coronach remains between 900-950 people.Services and attractions A variety of restaurants, and places to stay Coronach Sportsplex Fully equipped campsites Four baseball diamonds Horse racing track Coronach Golf Club with a 9-hole grass greens course Bowling alley Coronach Medical Center Coronach Museum K-12 school An array of different businesses, and services Outlaw Days – A weekend event that usually occurs during one of the last weekends in July.
