Rosthern

3.4
Rosthern is a town at the juncture of Highway 11 and Highway 312 in the central area of Saskatchewan, Canada. It is located roughly halfway between the cities of Prince Albert and Saskatoon.HistorySettlers began arriving around 1890, with the establishment of the Qu’Appelle, Long Lake & Saskatchewan Railway to Prince Albert. A post office was established in 1893, and by 1898 the community achieved village status. In 1903, Rosthern was incorporated as a town.Farmer and author Seager Wheeler lived just outside Rosthern.There are several apocryphal versions of the story about how the town got its name. One is that in the late 1880s when the railroad ran through from Regina to Prince Albert a man by the name of Ross drowned in the creek that flows through the town. Terne is old English for tarn meaning a pool, and the name stuck. In all likelihood, however, the town's name echoes an old world name brought over by a homesick worker on the railroad, in this case that of Rostherne, a village in the United Kingdom.DemographicsDominion Land Survey Section 35 - Township 42 - Range 3 West of the 3rd Meridian
