Churchbridge, Saskatchewan

The town of Churchbridge may be small, but it’s mighty. Located close to Kamsack. Moosmin and Esterhazy, you’ll find lots of beautiful little back roads to travel along. It’s close to several lakes, streams and parks, and it’s right along the famous Yellowhead Highway, so it’s easy to get to. In fact, it’s a fantastic place to stop if you’re camping or just travelling through.

History of Churchbridge

As you might expect, the town of Churchbridge started as a mission for the Anglican Church in 1887. (It’s not named after a church near a bridge, but rather the Anglican Church and Reverend Robert Bridger who first settled the colony. ) The population of the settlement continued to grow with help from the CPR and the Mosaic Potash Mines nearby. And today, it’s home to almost 800 residents.
