The Story of Emerson-Franklin
The history of Emerson-Franklin dates back to the early 1870’s when two railway entrepreneurs, Thomas Carney and William Fairbanks, planned a settlement on the east banks of the Red River immediately north of the United States border. Now known as the Gateway to the Canadian Mid-West, Emerson-Franklin continues to play a major part in facilitating north south trade.
