settlers traveled the
Boundary Commission Trail
south from Emerson, Manitoba

turning west near the U.S.
border to wind through the
Pembina Hills on to the
Turtle Mountains. Knowing
nothing of what lay ahead,
except what they’d heard five

artifacts describes the
challenges they overcame, the
churches, schools and
businesses they built, the
pioneer life they lived.
