Creating this Website

Creating this website felt like creating a work of art – and that is exactly what we feel this website has become as we share the stories of Yvette Moore, her family and all the artisans we showcase in our incredible historical building. Take your time as you browse through all the pages and especially the videos of 11 of our artisans as they welcome us all into their studios and display the passion of what makes them create their works, tell their stories. With the support of Tourism Saskatchewan, we feel that we have accomplished what we were striving for – to educate our viewers about the creative space that our artisans live and breath in as they passionately hand make their works of art.

A BROOKING Memory

Beginning in the early 1900s, settlers began to take up homesteads in this area that followed the Willowbunch Trail from Weyburn.  To get to Weyburn – a 35 mile trip – for supplies such lumber, food and coal, took up to three days.  Farmers had to haul their grain to Weyburn as well which proved to be a challenge – if the elevators were full in Weyburn, they came back and dumped their grain to await a future trip.

In 1906, this cement bridge was built over the creek near the future site of Brooking by a newly-formed Saskatchewan government.  By 1908, a rail line was proposed and planned by Canadian Northern Railway and so began the town of Brooking.  Soon businesses opened up quickly with 3 elevators, a post office, hotel, restaurants, bakery, poolroom and more.

Unfortunately, the future of Brooking became dismal when the railroads decided that the divisional point would be a Radville, just a short distance away.  The growth of Brooking came to an end almost overnight and businesses moved to Radville.  By 1935, only five businesses were left operating.

Today, all that remains of this community is the concrete bridge, one elevator and a few buildings.
