OUR HISTORY

                                                             Kipling was named for the great
                                                       English author, Rudyard Kipling. Rudyard
                                                       Kipling passed through Saskatchewan and
                                                       Regina on October 4, 1907. The story is
                                                       that he passed through his namesake
                                                       while on the train to Regina.

                                                            Kipling was settled during the great
                                                       Migration of settlers coming from Britain,
                                                       Hungary, Germany, and Scandinavian
                                                       countries with the offer of free land.

                                                              Its geographical location made
                                                        Kipling a CNR divisional point in the early
1900’s. This included a roundhouse and CNR station for both passengers and trains alike. In
turn, this evolved the town into a trading center for early pioneers to build homes, churches,
schools, and businesses of which our community still benefits from today.

     Our lapel pin was the product of a partnership between the Chamber of Commerce and
the Tourism Committee in 1989. The scroll and feather pen, both common writing tools of the
1900’s signify our connection to Rudyard Kipling. The paperclip was added in 2006 to
commemorate the Red Paperclip story.

    Kipling is home of the famous Red Paper Clip house traded to Kyle MacDonald of
www.oneredpaperclip.com. On July 12th, 2007 Kipling unveiled the Guinness World Book of
Records™ largest red paper clip built by Ardel Steel, Regina Saskatchewan.

Kipling Film Productions Inc. is a community venture project that was formed to assist with
funding for films and other media projects. We were working with Corbin Bernsen of Public
Media Works out of L.A. and Angel Entertainment from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in the
making of the movie “Rust” written by Bernsen. The movie was shot in the fall of 2007 in
Kipling.

OUR REGION

                            The southeast region of Saskatchewan is an abundant area of beautiful landscapes,
                            wildlife and recreational pursuits that offer the best of both urban and rural life. The
                            land is rich in resources with the blend of agriculture, oil and gas and tourism sectors
                            which provide a quality lifestyle for families and strong opportunities for business.

                            The warm, sunny climate makes it ideal for summer activities such as fishing, wa-
terskiing, golfing; and the winter sunshine creates ideal conditions for snowmobiling, cross country skiing or
snowshoeing.

Temperatures range from 20-32 degrees Celsius in the summer to as low as –32 Celsius in the winter. Annual
precipitation is 330 mm of rain with 115mm of snow in the winter.

As the glaciers rolled across the region to the South they deposited glacial debris in their wake creating the
central lowlands section of the southeastern part of the province. These lowlands are now rich prairie farmland
along with many small lakes, rivers and streams.

This unique landscape is home to several species of birds and water fowl including pelicans, ducks, Canada
geese, grouse, pheasant, meadowlarks, and sparrows. In the spring and fall, flocks of snow geese, swans and
other migratory birds pass through on their way to their northern summer home.

We are also home to sev-
eral wildlife species such
as white tail deer, mule
deer, moose, coyote, red
fox, rabbits, and the prairie
gopher. Lynx and cougar
have also been sighted.

Prairie flowers such as
bluebells, golden bean, but-
tercups, prairie roses and
lilies grace the roadways
and untouched grasslands
of the region.

                                                                   Prairie Sunrise

Kipling Memorial Health Center

The Kipling Memorial Health Center is situated in the center of Kipling, which has a population of
1279 (2012 Saskatchewan Health covered population).

The main building was constructed in 1948. An addition of a large service area and five beds was

Laboratory and outpatient area.

The original hospital, built in 1948, was dedicated as a permanent memorial to the veterans of two
great World Wars; hence, it derives the “Memorial” in its title.

The Kipling Memorial Health Center exists for the primary purpose of rendering the best possible
patient care. In addition to inpatient and outpatient services, the following additional services are
based out of the hospital:

   Physiotherapist on site
   Visiting Mental Health Nurse
   Home Care/Case Manager
   Social Worker on Site
   Visiting Dietitian
   Drug and Alcohol Rehab on Site
   Kipling has an active treatment acute care hospital. The hospital is very busy with
   outpatient services such as emergency care, laboratory and X-ray capabilities.

HERITAGE SITES

                                        KIPLING STATION

Kipling’s connection with railway transportation began when Kipling was designated to become a
CNR Divisional Point in the early 1900’s. The original CNR Station, built in 1908 (Cost $8,274), is
still being utilized today. There were only three depots built using the “Kashabowie” Design.
 No other railway used this unique feature. In 1993, the town of Kipling designated the station a
historical building; only the interior has changed.

                              Old Bekevar Presbyterian Church

The Twin-spire church in Derbrecen, Hungary influenced the style of the church. Built largely with
volunteer labour, cost of construction was $8,000. The church was formally dedicated July 12, 1912.
The church was the cultural center of the Hungarian Community for many years. Services in
English were introduced in 1941.
Today the church has been fully restored. A cairn in honour of the Hungarian pioneers was also
constructed on the original church site. Guided tours are conducted in the months of mid-June,
July and August. Contact person for tours is Garnet Smalley at (306) 224-2006. The church
celebrated its 100th anniversary in July of 2000. The church is utilized throughout the year for
worship services and celebrations.

                                                                                               25
PRESERVING OUR PAST

KIPLING & DISTRICT HISTORICAL SOCIETY

    The Kipling and District Historical Society was
    formed in the early 1970’s as part of a research
    project on Hungarian communities in Saskatche-
    wan. One of the ongoing activities was the devel-
    opment of the Kipling Museum with focus on pre
    serving the history of the early pioneers in the
    community.

    Visitors can tour an original heritage home (1903)
    complete with furnishings (this house also served
    as the first post office in the area), schoolhouse,
    blacksmith shop, dental office, service station with
    original Esso gas pumps as well as other attract
    tions.

    The Ovans’ family home was originally bricked in 1906 and the 8,000 bricks used cost $100.00. The brick
    laying provided by Mr. W. Nicholson cost $96.00. When the house was moved to the Museum site, the
    exterior was restored to original setting. Original owner was Mr. John Ovans, who was also appointed
    postmaster at Fitzmaurice in 1895. Interior décor is intact with various furnishings retained from earlier
    years and displayed in their original settings.

    Churches had a major role in the development of the culture and diversity of the community with settlers
    coming from a number of countries. The old Christ Lutheran Church is now situated on the Museum
    Grounds. April 4th, 2005 was the church’s Centennial Anniversary.

    The museum also features a building with artifacts and pictorial display of Kipling during its early years.
