Nature
Wood Mountain is a village in Old Post Rural Municipality 43, Saskatchewan, Canada. The town's name is derived from the Red River Métis words "Montagne de Bois", due to the abundance of poplar trees in the otherwise barren region. Highway 18 and Highway 358 intersect south of the community.Wood Mountain is known for its annual Stampede that has been held every year for more than 120 years. It is also known for its Sprinkle Fresh Spring Water taken from the Flowing Springs Ranch.This village is the administrative headquarters of the Wood Mountain Dakota Sioux First Nation band government.HistoryHistory taken from: Wood Mountain, SK: Our HistoryWood Mountain's first European settlers came in the 1870s, when about 35 Métis families moved here after the failure of the Red River Rebellion. Boundary Commission survey teams came through shortly after to mark the 49th parallel. They built the cabins that in 1874 became the first Wood Mountain North-West Mounted Police (NWMP) post. Chasing out the whiskey traders didn't take long, and the post was closed the next year.
