Monarch

Print

By 1910, Monarch was a thriving hamlet with a branch of the Canadian Bank of Commerce, a one room school, two hardware stores and with all passenger and mail trains stopping there.

A brickyard which produced varying qualities of clay bricks kept the community going for a short time.

Highway 3 used to go through Monarch but now bypasses the community completely and over the years population and industry have declined with people moving to larger areas.
