Chapter 8: Southern Hamlets, Villages, and Towns

8.14: Treherne

The Village of Treherne (population 646 in 2006) is located in the headwaters of the Boyne River 1 northeast of a set of light-toned drumlinoid features 2. It is another settlement with a road system determined by the railway line, in this case the CP line 3. The result is a pattern that is skewed with respect to the section lines 4 of the DLS grid. Most of Treherne is south of the line with only small new developments in the northeast 5 and south 6 that harmonize with the DLS system. In this relatively well-watered area of south-central Manitoba, streets are tree-lined 7, and trees shelter schools in the south 8. The dark-toned areas north of Treherne 9 are sewage lagoons, and the oblong light-toned areas to the east are straw stacks 10.
