As with many prairie pioneer settlements, it was made up of Scandinavian people who left their home countries in search of new opportunities in the Canadian West. This area was first settled by Swedish families by the names of Staboe and Lunde, who came here via Minnesota. The area was then called the Lundemo District. The Lunde family encouraged friends from Sweden to make the trip to Canada and so on. Within a few short years the area was settled.
The Wilhelmina Church was built in 1908. It is nice to see it still going strong 110 years later.
|A beautiful Church|
This house is very close to the church, maybe whoever lived here attended Wilhelmina Church.
