Grenfell

Trip Planner Canada  /  Saskatchewan  /  Grenfell
Grenfell is a town in Southern Saskatchewan, Canada. It is situated at the junction of Highway 47 and the Trans Canada Highway 80mi east of Regina, the provincial capital. It is 15mi south of the Qu'Appelle Valley where Crooked Lake Provincial Park and Bird's Point Resort are popular beach destinations in summer and are accessed by Highway 47.European settlement from Ontario and the British Isles began in 1882 before the Canadian Pacific Railway reached the site of the town. The post office was established in 1883; "the town’s name honours Pasco du Pre Grenfell, a railway company official."HistoryThe settlement was the result of the westward expansion of the Canadian Pacific Railway and the town is named after Pasco du P. Grenfell, an early shareholder of the railway company and a prominent railwayman. Initial settlement was from eastern Canada and the British Isles, followed shortly thereafter by Germans.Grenfell was incorporated as a town in 1911. It has a stable economic base and reasonable land prices.The community sent men to war in both the First and Second World Wars. They are remembered at the local cenotaph.As in many other prairie towns, Chinese railworkers from the building of the CPR in the 1880s settled down and established local businesses: as late as the 1960s there were two Chinese cafés on Main Street.
