My favourite stretch of highway is closed. Number 83 highway, between Russell and Roblin. It’s always been a squirrely drive. Huge holes and what not. I know this stretch, where it drops and turns into the other side of the valley. One of the most amazing views, but clearly a hazardous road.

There were flags warning you about huge chunks of road caving into itself, where sad attempts were made to fill the gaps with gravel. That started several years ago. It looks like where the flags were is where the slide happened. It was just a matter of time.

Asessippi Provincial Park →

In 1882, with the hope of an early railway connection and with a federal land grant, the Shell River Colonization Co. founded the village of Asessippi. A dam, roller process grist mill, saw mill, shingle factory, brick works and cheese factory were all built at this site.

Some 50 Ontario settlers had homesteaded here by 1883. However, the railway did not arrive. Lacking access to a larger market, local industries failed and in 1888 the Government of Canada revoked the Company’s charter. Most residents resettled in nearby communities like Shellmouth and Russell. For more information, refer to the publication Asessippi Townsite, available from Historic Resources Branch.
