The village of Tyndall was founded in 1893. The limestone that was quarried there still bears the name of tyndall stone and can be found all over North America and extensively in our older public buildings like the Manitoba Legislative buildings. Garson was incorporated as a village in 1915. The village is named after William Garson who was the founder of the limestone quarry in the region during the early 1900s. In recent years the LUD of Garson/Tyndall has seen a dramatic surge in population among young families and beautiful newly constructed homes – making them a beautiful place to raise your family & call home. The commute is made safe and easy by divided highway all the way to Winnipeg.
Beausejour was incorporated in 1912 and its’ current economy is based on agriculture (grain production) and tourism. Its location as a main access point to the Whiteshell Provincial Park, a popular cottage region and tourist attraction, allows Beausejour to cater to visitor traffic through the area. It also serves as the main commercial centre for farmers and residents of the surrounding areas. The French name Beauséjour [beau + séjour] means "beautiful stay" and won’t disappoint.
