Where's the beach?
The photo [on the actual information sign] provides clues to other events in Moose Jaw's
early history. The largest brick building on the hill to the east was built as the Moose
Jaw's Boys' College in 1912. It has since served as a senoirs nursing home and a personal
care home. The big brick building near the College originally belonged to Wellington White,
who owned and operated a brick factory located just across the road from where you are
standing. His bricks were used throughout Western Canada. River Park Campground,
formerly called the Tourist Camp, was built on the site in 1927 and, as of the turn
of the century, was the oldest continuously operated campground in North America.
