Many Swedish families settled the area and in 1916 a post office was opened with the name Warburg. According to Place Names of Alberta, Warburg is named after Warberg/Varberg Castle in Sweden with an spelling error along the way. The population continued to grow with the railroad expansion and in 1953, Warburg was incorporated as a Village. As of the 2016 census, it had a population of 766.
A few buildings caught my eye as we cruised around town. First an obvious old school, now the Warburg Museum. The current school is right next to it. If you look under the Warburg Museum letters, you see a letter peeking out..possibly an H, possibly from the word school.
