Berlo: A Gimli Heritage Community

Berlo, for many now just a spot on a map, has an important story to tell. It was here, in the early 1900s, that a small group of German immigrants to Canada set out to make a new life for themselves. And in their distinctive strip-farm villages and interesting farm and church buildings, they also created a fascinating part of the R.M. of Gimli’s ethnic composition, but also an important part of its heritage.

The booklet can be viewed online by clicking on the cover below. It is also available in hard copy at the Evergreen Regional Library.
