Things to do: golf
Starbuck is a small community in Manitoba near the La Salle River, and is located within the Rural Municipality of Macdonald.Starbuck is about a 25 minute drive from Winnipeg along Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH) 2. Also Provincial Road 332 runs north and south of town. The Canadian Pacific Railway's Souris line still runs through Starbuck providing the primary means of shipping grain out of the terminal. Passenger train service was halted a number of decades ago. Bus service to and from Winnipeg is provided 3 times per week.Starbuck has two churches (Catholic and Lutheran; the local United Church community shares the Lutheran Church after a 2014 fire destroyed the United Church building), a community hall, skating and curling rinks, and an early/middle years school. Also there is a butcher shop, a co-op gas bar/hardware store, a hotel, an insurance office, a credit union, a trucking company, a landscaper, a large grain terminal and an 18 hole golf course. As well there are several other businesses in and around Starbuck.HistoryFirst Nations and Métis people had lived in the area well before the arrival of European families who began settling around Starbuck by 1870. In 1881 the railway came through and in 1885 the community was named Starbuck by the contractor who graded the railway roadbed. According to Geographical Names of Manitoba the contractor's name was either Vanderstice, Vanderslie, or Vanzile. Also it may be that Starbuck was named after Starbuck, Minnesota or a similar named town in Germany. The Post Office was opened in 1887.There is a long held fable of Starbuck being named after two oxen, Star and Buck, who drowned in the La Salle River (formerly the Stinking River) where the community is now. However this story is very similar to how Starbuck, Minnesota got its name. In the end, it might have been the Minnesota community was named after William H. Starbuck, a railroad financier from New York.
