Historic Sites of Manitoba: Northern Manitoba Plaque (Northern Manitoba)

In 1912, the northern boundary of Manitoba was extended from a point two miles south of here to the 60th parallel of latitude. This acquisition of 178,000 square miles gave the province an ocean coast line on Hudson Bay, new resources in forests, minerals and water power, and reunited the old north of the fur trade with the new south of agricultural settlement. This plaque was installed here by the Historic Sites Advisory Board of Manitoba.
