The Rural Municipality of Kreuzberg was established in 1913. Incorporating much of the marginal farmland on the western edge of the Rural Municipality of Gimli, this area saw a number of schools built along the railway line that was constructed three years earlier. These were located in the hamlets of Malonton, Meleb, Rembrandt, and Kreuzberg (Fraserwood).
An event of great significance occurred on September 21,1936. The Governor General of Canada, Lord Tweedsmuir, paid a visit to the small community. When the school term opened, teacher Olga Uhryniuk received an official notice from the government that the Governor General was making a Canada-wide tour and that he planned to meet with the citizens of the hamlet of Fraserwood. It was a memorable day, as Lord Tweedsmuir visited the school and made an address to the students and numerous community members.
James Michel, President of the African nation of Seychelles, was born in Fraserwood, Manitoba on August 18, 1944.
