Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada

It was founded in 1883 as the proposed capital of a temperance colony, and its name was derived from Mis-sask-quah-toomina, a Cree Indian word for a local edible red berry. Following the arrival of the railroad from Regina (161 miles [259 km] southeast) in 1890 and its amalgamation with two adjoining settlements (1906), Saskatoon experienced rapid growth.
