According to Springside and district : memoirs Crossroads School District # 4775 was organised in 1928 and was on Sections in Tsp 27 Rge 6 & 7 W of the 2nd Meridian. The school building itsel was built SE 1/4 24 Tsp 27 Rge 7 W2. However, the first naming for the Crossroads/Cross Roads was Crossroads School District #495 located in Alberta at Tsp 39 Rge 27 W of the 4 Meridian. When Saskatchewan and Alberta became provinces in 1905, numbers previously in use in Alberta were cancelled and re-applied to School Districts of Saskatchewan. Creekside School District #997 was formed and disorganised by 1904 with a previous location of Tsp 27 Rge 7 W of the 2 Meridian, and so #997 appears on old School District Maps around Tsp 27 Rge 7 W2 instead of #4775. The area shape did change.
