Edenbridge was a Jewish farming settlement northeast of Melfort. Its first residents came from Lithuania via South Africa. The name is an Anglicization of Yid'n Bridge (Jews' Bridge), for a nearby bridge over the Carrot River. At its peak the Edenbridge Hebrew Colony had about 170 inhabitants, a post office, a school, and a synagogue -- Beth Israel Synagogue. The settlement is now abandoned.
