Ghost town Saskatchewan - Pheasant Forks

Pheasant Forks was an agricultural colony formed by Methodist settlers from Yorkshire England and Ontario in 1882. 

The two-room school was built in 1920 and is the third school to be built in the community. It was closed in 1947 due to declining enrolment.

The church was built in 1905 which replaced one built in 1883. Regular services ended in 1963.

The church, school, and historic marker are all that is left of the former colony.


  1. The school closed in '47, the church in 1963. It looks like there is still a lot of farming up in that area..

  2. Interesting that the church and school would survive whereas the houses didn't.
