Chapter 8: Southern Hamlets, Villages, and Towns

8.50: Miami

Miami is another settlement in which the railway line is parallel to the DLS system, so that streets in the settlement are parallel to and at right angles to both systems.

Miami is located on the western part of the Lake Agassiz Plain. A prominent strandline 1 with a gravel pit 2 excavated into it can be seen in the west as well as less distinct strandlines in the east 3. A wooded stream valley crosses the area from west to east 4, and another small stream has been channelized 5.

PTH 23 6 crosses the middle of the area and is paralleled in the east by the CN line 7 on which three elevators 8 can be seen. Most of Miami lies north of these two route ways with one wide road parallel to the railway line 9 and one at right angles 10. Several large buildings are located on these two roads;one in the northeast is probably a school 11. Settlement is sparse in this area with only one or two farms 12 per section.
