Name of creator
The Rural Municipality of North Cypress was formed in the mid 1880's to act as the Local Government. In 1882 incorporation was granted by the Province of Manitoba. The municipal boundaries were Townships 10, 11 and 12 in ranges 13, 14, 15, and 16. The boundaries remained such until 1900 when a petition was presented to have the north half of Township 9 in Range 13 transferred from the Rural Municipality of South Cypress. Towns in the area are Wellwood, Edrans, Brookdale, and districts are Harte, Ingelow, Oberon, Montrose, Firdale and Gregg. The R. M. is affiliated with the Association of Manitoba Municipalities. The first Reeve was William Spence. The councilors for 1882 were Cyrus Turner of Wellwood, Manitoba, and James Kennedy, John Thompson and Messrs Gowanlock, Duncan and Brydon.
Records have been presented to the Carberry Plains Archives in 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, and 2000 by the Rural Municipality of North Cypress.
