Brenda was incorporated as a Rural Municipality on 22 December 1883. It was named by Major A. Cates of Napinka after his daughter. Cates took an active role in the incorporation of the Municipality when rearrangement of the old RM of Medora became necessary. The original RM of Brenda was combined into a new, larger RM of Winchester between 1883 and 1890.
