Welcome to Clearwater!

Imagine coming to visit a little town on the edge of a valley where white-tailed deer roam the streets at dusk, bald-headed eagles soar over the valley, and wild turkeys pick for food along the road.

A friendly community with a small town spirit, Clearwater is the perfect place for people interested in starting a new business, raising a family or retiring in a clean and safe environment.

Town Picture
The Hamlet of Clearwater was established in 1876. It was considered to be in the Northwest Territories, as the official boundary of Manitoba was the 99th meridian (which was one mile east of the town). In 1877, the boundary was extended to its present location. Take a walk down a side street and see two beautiful 100 year old churches – St. Paul's Anglican Church was built in 1889 and its interior remains untouched by redecoration or design. Just a few steps away is Knox United Church which was built in 1893 at a cost of $1,625.00
