Pluses:  What can I say? Lots!
Elgin, while small in size is BIG on hospitality.

There is a lovely park nearby with camping facilities and a golf course. The museum displays artifacts, local and family history, old time farm implements and an operating windmill and water pump. The nearby Dodds Farms grain elevator is an example of a 'prairie sentinal'.

The cemetery north of town has a number of older gravesites and ornamental headstones that were popular in the early 1900's.

The Elgin Senate meets at the West Elgin Mall on a regular basis to solve the problems of the world, tell lies and make slanderous remarks about the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Elgin is close to Bunclody which also has a very nice picnic park and is home to the Bunclody Marching Band which is always the 'invited band' for various celebrations in the district.

Hey, if you are looking for a wild and crazy time, stay home. But for a pleasant visit for a day, or over the weekend, Elgin welcomes you.

Minuses:  Let's not be negative about the positive.

A good place to...  Visit and get in touch with the relaxing mood of a friendly village.

 A pleasant drive from Brandon, Souris, Deloraine or Boissevain and the International Peace Garden.
