Local Heritage

From unique field stone heritage homes, to rustically restored heritage barns, old elm trees, a scenic lakefront, and Morden roses, there are so many reasons why Morden is a city of beauty and richly steeped history. There is no shortage to the variety of historical topics of importance to Morden.

Following ancient fossil finds in the 1970s, Morden has become a boon to the paleontological significance of Manitoba, and currently houses some of the world’s largest ancient marine reptile fossils at the Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre.

Morden area is also near the geographical site of the invention of the Red River Ox Cart and part of the historical NWMP Boundary Commission Trail.
