Manitoba Communities: Morden (City)
This municipality is named for Alvey Morden who settled here in 1874 and homesteaded on NW9-3-5W until his death. Morden developed from two towns nearby that preceded arrival of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1882: Nelsonville to the northwest and Mountain City to the southwest.
