Landmark Real Estate Listings and Information
Landmark is a hamlet in the province of Manitoba located about 30 km southeast of the provincial capital, Winnipeg in the RM of Tache. It has a population of approximately 1500 people (as of 2010). Landmark serves largely as a dormitory community or exurb for people who work in Winnipeg but prefer to reside in a small-town environment.
The town lies in an area with rich black soil known to yield fine crops. Situated in a low-lying area, the town relies on drainage provided by the constructed Seine River Diversion to minimize flooding caused by the spring melt.
Although at least four homesteads were established in about 1907, much of the area was barren until just after World War I. It was at this time that a number of families living in neighboring areas faced shortages of land for agricultural expansion. By 1920, a dozen Mennonite families had purchased land in the area and had begun establishing their new farms. Within a year of that, the area had its first church building, and by 1925 a school district had been organized.
