Treherne is a former town in southern Manitoba, Canada within the Municipality of Norfolk Treherne. It is located halfway between Winnipeg and Brandon on Provincial Highway 2. Primarily a farming community, Treherne has a population of around 700 people, and has two schools (Treherne Elementary School and Treherne Collegiate Institute) and a hospital.
Recently, a brand new daycare facility was opened in the community, and in 2006 Treherne proudly opened the Treherne Aquatic Centre next to a top-rated campground facility.
Treherne hosts the annual "Run for the Hills" marathon each fall with the course winding through the Tiger Hills. A popular tourist attraction in Treherne consists of a glass bottle house, chapel, wishing well, and outhouse, built by local resident Bob Cain. Treherne also has a museum, which exhibits an extensive antique gun collection and a mini indoor village.
