History

Cudworth is in hilly partially forested country east of the South Saskatchewan River. The area is part of the aspen parkland biome. The town was originally peopled primarily by settlers of Eastern European origin including Germany, Hungary, Poland and Ukraine.[1]

Located two miles west of Cudworth is Our Lady of Sorrows shrine. The site consists of an altar, chapel, statue and Stations of the Cross on a hill west of highway 2. The shrine was established after three children saw beautiful sad lady dragging chains and carrying a golden cross – when they approached her, she vanished. There is an annual pilgrimage every year on the tenth Sunday after Easter and is the official pilgrimage of the Saskatoon Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy.[2]

The Cudworth Heritage Museum (former CN Station) (c. 1925) is a Municipal Heritage Property on the Canadian Register of Historic Places.[3] |url = http://www.canada.com/technology/Sask+town+cringes+YouTube+duck+killers+plead+guilty/1877602/story.html |title = YouTube duck killers plead guilty, apologize for antics |last = Coolican |first = Lori |date = August 10, 2009 |work = The StarPhoenix |publisher = CanWest |accessdate = 2009-12-07}</ref>[4][5][6]
