Chapter 8: Southern Hamlets, Villages, and Towns

8.2: Roseisle

The small hamlet of Roseisle is located at the foot of Pembina Mountains about 15 miles (24 km) west of Carman. Faint indications of Lake Agassiz strandlines can be seen in the southwest 1. In contrast to the land shown on figure 8.1, large areas of woodland remain 2.

The CN line runs west-southwest/east-northeast across the area 3 with an elevator on a siding at Roseisle 4. In the hamlet that had a population of less than 50 when the photo was taken, a road runs parallel to the line 5 but set back some distance from it. In contrast to Coulter, two roads 6 run at right angles to this road. In 1958 PR 245 passed through Roseisle and continued east 7 and west 8.
