Indianola Sod SD 2704 earned an image and history on Pages 59 to 61 of The little white schoolhouse Pulse of the community Those bittersweet schooldays Title History of Aneroid., paraphrased as follow: The community met in the spring of 1910 to oranize a school, yet the closest source of lumber was Swift Current, 99.87 Kilometers (62.06 miles) to the northwest, and the rail had not yet arrived to this community. A sod schoolhouse was put forward as a temporary building. "Your proposiation is too weird to consider. A building of bricks, logs, stones or boards, yes but who ever heard of a sod schoolhouse? " was the first reply from the Department of Education. The community persisted, and finally Mr. H. Calder, deputy Minister of Education relented, "Remember! Yours will be the only so schoolhouse in the west!" The sod schoolhouse opened in the spring of 1911 serving 21 students, and closed in 1914 giving way to frame one room schoolhouses.
