Dugald Real Estate Listings and Information
Dugald is a community in Manitoba 22 km east of Winnipeg at highway 15 and 206 in the Rural Municipality of Springfield. It is a town of approximately 800 people, which prides itself in its sense of community and small town friendliness. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet close enough to all its conveniences.
On September 1, 1947, it was the site of a railway accident. A Canadian National Railway passenger train consisting of old wooden - bodied passenger cars collided with a trans-continental passenger train made up of newer steel cars, resulting in severe damage and fatalities on the older train. This accident led to the retirement of the less crash worthy wooden cars.
Dugald was also home to the Costume Museum. A museum dedicated to Canadian fashion. The museum is now in the process of moving to a new location in Winnipeg, reportedly at the Forks. The Springfield Curling Club is located in the community.
Dugald is the birthplace of former NHL goaltender Trevor Kidd.
