New Warren

In 1903 homesteaders from Warren, Minnesota,
established the hamlet of New Warren. It was
located across the intersection, on the south
east corner of section 3-13-23

The rail line originally planned from
Ft. Qu'Appelle to Wood Mountain was abandoned
when the Great Northern Railway constructed
a line between Moose Jaw and Radville in 1911.
The post office and businesses of New Warren
were re-located to the new rail site 3, 2
kilometers south and the town was renamed
Avonlea.

Erected 1999 by the Avonlea Historical Committee.
