Location of Marengo in Saskatchewan

Marengo is a village in west central Saskatchewan, Canada, about 45 km (28 mi) west of Kindersley. It is located within the Sun West School Division.

History[edit]

In 1910, the village was incorporated under the name Melbourne, which was probably a preliminary name given by the Canadian Northern Railway. However, the post office was given the name Marengo in 1911, named after Marengo, Illinois, the hometown of pioneer J. Ray Goodrich. Later in 1911, it was changed to Fuller after a manager of a ranch, because the post office would not allow "Melbourne". After three years, they changed it back to Marengo.[1]
