Historic Sites of Manitoba: Adelpha Town Site (Municipality of Boissevain-Morton)

This site in the Municipality of Boissevain-Morton was the former location of the community of Adelpha, established in 1905 when the Canadian National Railway built a branch line from Greenway, and the station here was named for the Adelpha post office that had operated in the vicinity since the early 1880s. The rail line was extended on to Deloraine in 1914.
