Onanole

Onanole is an unincorporated hamlet within the Municipality of Harrison Park in Manitoba, Canada.

Onanole is located in southwest Manitoba, at the south entrance to Riding Mountain National Park. It sits roughly 105 km (65 mi) due north of the city of Brandon, and 135 km (84 mi) east of the Saskatchewan border.

The community was first recognized when a post office opened in 1928, with Neil W. Tracy as postmaster. The name was suggested by Tracy, after the Onanole Hotel in the Adirondack Mountains in northeastern New York, similarly situated "on a knoll".[1]
