History

During the Red River Rebellion, companies of British soldiers and Ontario residents were sent west to quell the rebellion. In 1897-98, surveyors arrived at the point where Redvers now stands and were called upon to give it a name. The headlines in the newspaper that night carried the news of the Boer War and mentioned the name of General Sir Redvers Buller, Warren, Rhodes, Methuen and Wauchope. The town was then given the name of Redvers, and in honor of the other generals, named many of the town streets after them. Redvers became a town in 1904. A statue of a Northwest Mounted Policeman in our town commemorates the Red Coat Trail, which runs through the town.
