Located in the southeast corner of Saskatchewan, Midale was established by three men from the United States: Rev. Ole Sutherland, Olaf Wedin and Andrew Westman.
They formed a partnership and started the first post office, lumber yard and a small grain elevator.
The first name selected for the town was Mitchell after a doctor who served the area between Moose Jaw and Estevan.
But that name was already taken by a town in the territory.
So it was decided the name would come from a combination of the first two letters of Mitchell and Dale, after Ole Dale, the area?s first homesteader. In 1962, Midale was incorporated as a town.
