Historic Sites of Manitoba: Wakopa Monument (Municipality of Killarney-Turtle Mountain)

A monument, dedicated on 3 July 1960, is located at the former site of the village of Wakopa in what is now the Municipality of Killarney-Turtle Mountain. A trading post and junction point on the old Boundary Commission Trail, Wakopa was also the site of the first grist mill in the municipality. The municipal council held its first meeting here on 13 January 1883. For a twenty-year period in the early 20th century, it hosted a station of the Great Northern Railway between North Dakota and Brandon.
