Introducing Moose Jaw
If there was ever a town that could say it had a sordid past, Moose Jaw is it. From simple beginnings as a Canadian Pacific Railway outpost, the town steadily grew in both size and infamy. In the 1920s it became a haven for Al Capone and his unsavory buddies, who used the town as a base for smuggling whiskey into the US. But Moose Jaw’s rebellious past, complete with brothels, brushes with the KKK and rampant corruption is all a distant memory now. What remains are the Art Deco buildings, numerous murals and friendly locals.
