Historic Sites of Manitoba: International Interprovincial Boundary Monument (Municipality of Two Borders)

This monument is situated where the provinces of Manitoba and Saskatchewan meet the state of North Dakota. The Manitoba portion is in the Municipality of Two Borders but the site is not accessible by road from Manitoba. Instead, one must drive a few miles west into Saskatchewan, then south to a road along the Canada-US border and drive back east along this road.

There, one finds a stone marker denoting the the international boundary and a monument erected in 1969 by commissioners of the International Boundary Commission (A. F. Lambert for Canada, Richard L. Herman for the United States) and commissioners of the Manitoba-Saskatchewan Boundary Commission (R. Thistlethwaite for Canada, Edward Gauer for Manitoba, W. M. Schwartz for Saskatchewan).
