Moosomin was established back in 1882 and was originally known as Moosomin Station.  Business gradually came in and started establishing themselves by 1884 creating 4 Hotels, 2 Livery Stations, 2 Blacksmith’s, a Doctor, Lawyer and others.  As of 2011/2012 Moosomin was experiencing an amazing amount of growth due to a huge Potash mine just north of Brandon.  The PotashCorp Rocanville mine is currently undergoing a $2.8 billion expansion.  As far as electricity goes, there is a $50+ million Wind Farm that has started providing power to the town as of last year.  There is a lot going on in this town as it is a great place to take a break from reality.
