Townsite of Expanse
NW 1/4 12 -12 - 29 W 2 M
Canadian Pacific Railway purchased the
townsite in 1911 and named it Expanse.
Incorporated as a village in 1912, the
first council meeting was held January
7, 1913.

Expanse was the fifth town on the C.P.R.
line south of the city of Moose Jaw. It
was the end of the C.P.R. track for the
south part of the province from July 1912
until 1914. As an "end of Track" boom
town, homesteaders got supplies and
brought grain to Expanse as far
south as the U.S.A. border. The village of
Expanse was disorganised in 1935.

Erected 1994 by
