Historic Sites of Manitoba: Fallison Marker (Fallison, Municipality of Louise)

In 1914, the village of Fallison was established in what is now the Municipality of Louise along the CPR Fallison Subdivision. This occurred when local farmer John Fallis petitioned Premier Rodmond Roblin to extend the railway from Snowflake to this point. That railway line was abandoned in July 1962, the grain elevator closed, and the rail were removed the following month.
