Weldon is historically recognized in that the first Canadian grain ever shipped through the port of Churchill, Manitoba and sent via freighter through the Hudson Bay was grown in the Weldon area. Of some note is the fact that hundred of thousands of bushels of grain from the area was sent via that port to Britain during WWII.
The village has seniors citizens lodge, a seniors club, a riding club/association, a winter recreation centre, an auditorium/gymnasium complex, a public library, a furnished summer sports field and worship centres for 1 denomination as well as a non-denominational assembly. The community is noted for its old growth tree-lined streets and the natural beauty of the farmland in the parkland region.
Weldon has modern amenities and services, and its population of approximately 200 enjoys a quiet, relaxed lifestyle reminiscent of another era. Many of the residents trace their lineage back to their Norwegian forebears who first established the community just after the turn of the previous century. Weldon's senior residents hold strong links to their roots in Norway and every May 17 a large "Syttende Mai" celebration is a significant cultural event in the village. The village's population grew fivefold during its 2005 Homecoming Celebrations held during the Canada Day weekend.
