How Did Edenwold Get It's Name? Print
woods of edenWhen Reverend H. Schmieder came to the district of Neu Tulscha (also spelled Neu-Tulcea or New Tulscha) in 1889, the appearance of the region reminded him of the Garden of Eden.   Because of the abundance of aspen groves, Philip Mang, Sr. remarked that it looked more like the "Woods of Eden"; thus the name "Edenwald" was termed.  This name was sent to Ottawa for registration.  There was a slight error made in Ottawa changing the "a" to an "o" and so we became Edenwold.
