In what is now central Saskatchewan, there was a stagecoach depot on the Carlton Trail known as the Humboldt Telegraph Station and Post, named after the famed German author, explorer and scientist Baron Alexander von Humboldt.

Today, although the Carlton Trail and stage coaches and telegraphs are long gone, Humboldt remains, a vibrant community of 5,500 and growing.

One of the best-known sights in the Humboldt area, and one of Saskatchewan's seven Man-Made Marvels is St. Peter's Cathedral and Abbey just north of the town, near Muenster.

The cathedral, built by the monks and early pioneers between 1908 and 1910, is an excellent example of German design and artwork.
