Fire insurance plan of Maple Creek, Saskatchewan
1911, by Chas. E. Goad

The pivotal role played by the railway in the development of Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, is obvious in this fire insurance plan from 1911. Located in southwestern Saskatchewan, Maple Creek became a service centre to the local ranching community shortly after it was incorporated in 1903. Today, the community is able to draw on its hinterland for some $24 million in annual livestock sales, and consequently, has survived as a small but vibrant community while other Prairie towns have failed.
