A society built on Victorian social values, complete with fox hunts, dramatics societies, poetry clubs, croquet, cricket and tennis … all supported by an agricultural economy. This was the dream of British settlers who homesteaded southeast of the Moose Mountains over 100 years ago.
Their way of life flourished for a few, brief years; but, by 1900, the village of Cannington Manor was abandoned. The short life was a merry one, led by the Cannington bachelors (Remittance Men) whose whiskey camps, thoroughbred racehorses, and rugby teams became legendary.
Today, Cannington Manor Provincial Park recreates this exciting period of history on the original village site. Original artifacts and reconstructed buildings allow costumed staff to bring Cannington Manor to life through interpretative programs and period demonstrations.
A picnic area and washrooms are available and most village buildings are wheelchair accessible. There are four access roads into Cannington Manor Provincial Park from Moose Mountain Provincial Park, Wawota, Manor, and White Bear Reserve. Located just 16 km northeast of Manor off Highway 13, Cannington is an ideal day trip from areas such as Regina, Estevan, or Weyburn.
