A Commemorative Historical Landmark

In 1973 Samuel Barish and Cyril Leonoff, two descendants of the original Wapella pioneers, with help from the Jewish Historical Society of British Columbia, initiated a campaign to raise funds to construct a cairn as an historical marker to commemorate the pioneer families.  The Saskatchewan Government provided a bronze plaque to place on the front of the cairn. An image of this plaque is included above as well as a map below showing its geographical location.
