This blog is for discussion of the community of Herb Lake Landing, the ghost town of Herb Lake and the former Hudson Bay Railway Community of Wekusko, MB.

Herb Lake Landing is a small thriving community in Northern Manitoba on Wekusko Lake. This blog will allow us to discuss current issues that affect the community. Herb Lake Landing was originally a stopping-off place for travellers and freight on their way to the gold mines at Herb Lake.  It has always been a small community, but it has survived with continuous settlement for almost 100 years.  In 2013 we celebrated our 96th birthday.

Herb Lake was a community also situated on Wekusko Lake, but it has long disappeared. Although it is gone, the memories linger and it is hoped that this blog will allow people to share their thoughts and memories of where they or their parents/grandparents lived.

Wekusko was once a thriving railway community on the Hudson Bay Rail Line.  All freight for Herb Lake was shipped through Wekusko.
