A small history of a small town — This town in Canada, with a population of about 1,700 people, has fertile land, a scenic location, and great weather. The name Kamsack came from an early post office of the same name, which was located in one of the early settlers’ homes. The town was doing well until the great depression when the population dropped rapidly. In 1944 a tornado hit the area destroying homes and businesses. After 2 million dollars in damages, the veterans from WWII helped rebuild the area which reinstated the business, public and residential sections of the town.
