The Town of Langham was first established around 1904 with the construction of the primary CNR rail line running north west to Edmonton. As the surrounding land was settled for farming by various ethnic groups, the town prospered. Being on a main highway and railway, several grain companies, farm equipment companies, and oil companies established businesses providing both local employment and much needed services. However, as throughout Saskatchewan, people migrated toward the cities as farms grew larger and the population of Langham, as well as its services, decreased to below 500 in the 1960's. Langham has the best of rural and urban life. The small town atmosphere has attracted many new residents over the past few years and is one of Langham's biggest assets. Saskatoon is very accessible from Langham. It is only a 20 minute drive on four lane highway. This makes all the conveniences, events and luxuries of urban life easily accessible.
