Historic Sites of Manitoba: Carlingville Post Office Sign (Municipality of Prairie View)

This marker in the Municipality of Prairie View commemorates the community of Carlingville, which existed here from 1884 to 1901. When the Canadian Pacific Railway arrived in the area in 1900 and a railway station north of here was named Crandall, the post office was moved to it and renamed. According to Geographic Names of Manitoba, the name derived from the Carling Beveridge Company, which provided financial assistance for establishing the first school in this vicinity.
