Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hummerston Town Site (Hummerston, Municipality of North Cypress-Langford)

In 1904, the now-deserted community of Hummerston was established at this site, at a siding of the Canadian National Railway in what is now the Municipality of North Cypress-Langford. It was named for Albert Hummerston, the first farmer to ship a load of grain from this point.
