Gladstone, Manitoba

Gladstone is a small town located in Manitoba on the Yellowhead Highway #16, about 65 km northwest of Portage la Prairie. The town was first settled in the late 1800s, and its development was driven by the expansion of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) through the area.

Gladstone is a thriving community with a population of approximately 2,000 people. The town has several parks, and recreational facilities that include a golf course, an outdoor pool, and a community hall. Its economy is still primarily based on agriculture and manufacturing.

Gladstone History

In 1882, the Candian Pacific Railway established a station and a small settlement near present-day Gladstone. The town was named after William Ewart Gladstone, then the British Prime Minister. The town attracterd many settlers to the area building its agricutural base, and the town quickly grew as a result of the railway, and by 1884, it had a post office, a school, and several businesses.  In 1890, Gladstone was incorporated as a village, and in 1905, it became a town.

In 1921, a major fire destroyed a large portion of the town’s business district. However, the town was quickly rebuilt, and many of the buildings that were built aftert the fire still stand today. Over the 1900s, Gladstone continued to grow. The town soon had new schools, a hospital, and a community center. In the 1960s, the town’s economy began to shift towards manufacturing, with the establishment of several factories and mills.
