Photos & Coordinates | Historic Sites | Sources

An early Mennonite community whose name in German means “rose field,” in 1882 it became a station on the CPR Carman Subdivision through this region of southern Manitoba. In 1949, it became the Unincorporated Village of Rosenfeld with a council of three persons, elected every three years, and a Secretary-Treasurer appointed by the elected council. When the Manitoba Municipal Act was re-written in 1996, it became a Local Urban District (LUD), which it remains today.
