The Village of Maryfield is situated near the beautiful Pipestone Valley and is located in the heart of the prairie flatlands. It offers many amenities as well as the solitude and security of a small town community.

The town lies south of the intersection of Highway 48 and Highway 600 and is home to approximately 370 residents. The village is only 8 km from the Manitoba border and nearly100 km northeast from the city of Estevan. Maryfield is within close proximity to communities such as Moosomin, Redvers, and Wawota.

Since 2004, a group of hardworking volunteers from within the community formed the Maryfield Beautification Group, as part of the Homecoming Celebrations in 2007. Their hard work was aimed at improving the Villages general appearance. Each year they continue to improve and create new community gardens for everyone to enjoy. Make sure you take the time to stop by this “blooming” community to see all that it has to offer and experience rural Saskatchewan living.

History

Situated on Highway 48, Maryfield is an 8 kilometre drive from the Manitoba border and only an 80 kilometre drive from the United States border.

The Maryfield district derived its name from Captain John “Jack” McNaught who had immigrated from Scotland and homesteaded in the area. Mr. McNaught named his homestead after his sister Mary who was back in Scotland. Mr. McNaught sent a man on his pony to Fleming for the mail on a weekly basis. The rider soon became known as the Maryfield Post Man. A Maryfield School District was formed and soon after, a post

office opened near the school. The C.P.R. surveyed a townsite in 1905 and the Village of Maryfield was incorporated in 1907.
