In November 2008, the Department of Infrastructure and Transportation designated PTH 44 as Historic Highway No. 1 and installed 21 signs to that effect along the route. PTH 44 was part of the first national highway system prior to the current Trans-Canada Highway.
 
With the introduction of the trunk highway system in Manitoba in 1925, this route was originally designated as PTH 10 and dead-ended at Seddons Corner. In subsequent years, it was extended to the Ontario boundary and was redesignated as PTH 1. Following the construction of the present-day route of PTH 1 east of Winnipeg in the 1950s, this route was redesignated for the third time, this time as PTH 4 in a haphazard connection to the Yellowhead Highway, which was then known as PTH 4. After the numbering of the Yellowhead Highway was standardized as 16 throughout the four prairie provinces in the late 1970s, this route took its fourth number, PTH 44, which remains in effect to this day.
