In 1882 some 200 settlers from Ontario bought land in the Northwest Territories in what is now southeastern Saskatchewan. They called the community around their trading post York City. In 1890 the railroad arrived; York City settlers relocated to be near the railroad line and chose the name Yorkton. A plaque marks the site of York City; millstones from the original settlement's gristmill can still be seen.
Good Spirit Lake Provincial Park offers summer recreation. The park, a Hudson's Bay Co. post in the 1880s, is noted for miles of sandy beaches and dunes.
