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.HistoryRosthern was 100 years old in 2003. Its history is strongly tied to the farming industry. Famous experimental 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.DemographicsLat 52° 40' 00" NLong 106° 20' 00" WDominion Land Survey Section 35 - Township 42 - Range 3 West of the 3rd MeridianTime zone UTC−6AttractionsThe Seager Wheeler Farm, a National Historic Site of Canada, is 7 km east of Rosthern.
