Historic Sites of Manitoba: Roseisle Pioneer Monument (RM of Dufferin)

Roseisle received its name in the early 1890s by settlers Mr. and Mrs. A. Beggs. Struck by the beauty of a small rose-covered ‘isle’ rising out of the water after a big rain, the Beggs decided Roseisle was an appropriate name for the area, in the Rural Municipality of Dufferin. The name stuck and later was adopted for the town when the railway came through in 1901. A monument was dedicated on 15 September 1991 to the early settlers of the Roseisle district. The rose statue was conceived, designed and built by local welder Clifford McPherson and painted by Roseisle artist Stephen Jackson.
