History

The town of Warman was born when the Canadian National Railway running from Humboldt to North Battleford intersected with the Canadian Pacific Railway running from Regina to Prince Albert. This took place in the fall of 1904.

In 1910, A fire destroyed much of the town, including most of Main St. (which contained much of Warman's businesses) and the pool house, reducing Warman's population. This is why, in Warman, Main St. is a small street with houses (years after the fire, only houses were built on Main St.).

The original name of the town was called Diamond, because the crossing of the two railroad lines created a diamond shape. Soon the name of the town site was changed to Warman, named after Cy Warman (1855-1914), a journalist who followed and recorded the construction of the Canadian national Railway. In 1905, there was a huge influx of settlers so that in 1906, Warman was organized as a village. By 1927, the population had dropped to 148 people so that the village council decided to disorganize and return to hamlet status. For the next 35 years the affairs of the hamlet were handled by the Rural Municipality of Warman, who had their office in Warman.

In the early 1950s Warman began to grow again. By 1961, the population of Warman had reached 659, so it was decided in 1962 to incorporate again as a village. It was incorporated as a town four years later.
