A Story for Every Mile and a Site for Every Story in the Boundary Trail National Heritage Region
Click image for a ‘quick tour’ of some of the amazing stories and sites to be found in the BTNHR.
This narrow strip of southern Manitoba that extends from the Red River to the Saskatchewan border and encompasses all the municipalities adjacent to the U. S. border.
The glorious history of this region stretches back to the prehistoric ocean of the Cretaceous era to the Mound Builders who came following the retreat of the glaciers of the last Ice Age and left their burial and ceremonial mounds throughout the area to mark their passage. Other aboriginal tribes who for untold generations successfully used buffalo jumps to turn herds of bison into food, clothing and shelter followed them.
