Garson

The village was named after William Garson who was the founder of the limestone quarry in the region during the early 1900s. Garson, along with the neighbouring community of Tyndall, has provided the famous fossil-filled Tyndall stone used to build the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, the Manitoba Legislature and many other well-known buildings across Canada.  The longest running dimensional stone quarry is a spectacular sight.  While in Garson, visit the Garson Sportfishing Park that is open year-round and offers stocked fishing ponds as well as a bait and tackle shop.
