History



HOW DID ESTEVAN GET ITS' NAME?

Arthur Kelly homesteaded the original town site. The railroad survey was made in 1892. The Soo Line was completed from Moose Jaw to North Portal in 1893 and a flurry of activity and a great deal of excitement went into the start of Estevan. Like many communities of Saskatchewan the settlement was a child of the railroad and the railroad gave it its name. Estevan is derived from a combination of the names of George Stephen, first president of the CPR and William C. van Horne, the company’s second president.
