About this community

Hepburn, situated in Saskatchewan, lies approximately 45 kilometers north of Saskatoon along Highway 12.

Established in the early 20th century as a railroad station, Hepburn experienced rapid growth with the arrival of the railway, attracting numerous settlers to the area. By the 1930s, the population had surged to over 800 individuals. However, the community faced adversity during the Great Depression and a severe drought in Western Canada, leading to a significant exodus of residents and farmers. By the end of the decade, the population dwindled to less than 300.

During the 1940s, Hepburn made notable contributions to World War II, with over 60 men from the community serving in the armed forces. Post-war, Hepburn embarked on a path of resurgence, witnessing the construction of new homes and infrastructure.

In 1989, the province ceased operations of the railroad line, leaving three grain elevators stranded. While two were dismantled, one was repurposed into a museum showcasing Hepburn's rich history and the broader narrative of Saskatchewan.

Hepburn was also home to Bethany College, a small Bible college with approximately 73 students, until its closure in May 2015. Additionally, Hepburn School, encompassing both elementary and high school education, celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2001, making it the oldest continuously operating school in Saskatchewan within its original building.

As of 2021, Hepburn boasted a population of 784 residents, residing in 268 of its 276 total private dwellings, underscoring its enduring appeal as a cherished community in Saskatchewan.
