Historic Sites of Manitoba: Old Poplarfield Monument (Poplarfield, RM of Fisher)

Between 1903 and 1906, families from Ukraine settled at NE12-22-2W in the Rural Municipality of Fisher and created the community of Poplarfield, later known as Old Poplarfield. With the closure of the CNR Inwood Subdivision, people gradually moved to the present-day site of Poplarfield near Highway #7 (present-day #17). A monument was erected in 1951 by Poplarfield and district pioneers.
