Historic Sites of Manitoba: Blythfield (RM of Macdonald)

In 1879, a post office was established by William H. Mellow at this location in the Rural Municipality of Macdonald, named for Blythfield Township, Ontario. With the coming of the railway to this area in the early 20th century, settlers were drawn toward the railway station at Sanford and once-thriving community of Blythfield disappeared. The post office closed in 1911.
