Homesteaders mainly from England and
Ontario settled in this area 1905-1920 in the
vicinity of junction of Touchwood/Lumsden
and Ft. Qu'Appelle/Carlton Trails. First post
office named Crossroads but changed to
Crosswoods because of another Crossroads post
office. CROSSWOODS SCHOOL, named after the
post office, was erected in 1905 on this site.
First trustees were James Harris, William King,
John Cleverley. In 1928 a new and larger
school was built to accommodate increased
