Rolling Through Rocanville

FTLComm - Rocanville - Sunday, April 20, 2003

Rocanville is located on highway #8 mid way between Langenberg and Moosomin in the midst of the potash mines that stretch across from that community to Esterhazy.

This outstanding and imposing building is on the corner of main street as you drive through the town and

it certainly makes an impression. Above it eh view looking North up Main street.

This unusual building is situated on the highway and is completely boarded up. But the unusual roof seems like someone had a different idea about how to construct a building.

The valley seen below is South of Rocanville. This part of Saskatchewan has black soil with lots of small hills. The fields vary considerably with some unuseable because of the stones, there are gravel quarries and rich fields for grain production. Only minutes South of Rocanville is an oil field that stretches until about two miles North of Moosomin. The field appears to be high sulfur as there were signs of flare equipment but there were no signs of sour gas or flares.
