Historic Sites of Manitoba: Postage Stamp Province 1870 (RM of Lansdowne)

This site in the Rural Municipality of Lansdowne marks the location of the northwest corner of the original Province of Manitoba as established by The Manitoba Act of 1870 and the Dominion Act of 1877. From this point, the boundary extended east to the Manitoba-District of Keewatin (now Ontario) boundary and south to the Canada-United States border. Manitoba's boundaries were extended in 1881 and 1912 to their present locations. The original survey post for this corner was placed on 4 July 1872 by John McLatchie, a land surveyor with the Dominion Government.

This monument was dedicated on 4 July 2005 in commemoration of the 125th annual meeting of the Association of Manitoba Land Surveyors.
