History

Before 1905, Indian Head would have been part of the North West Territories.

The first settlers moved into the district in 1882. Indian Head was established as a town in 1902, and was said to be the largest point of initial shipment of wheat in the world. Indian Head has had many firsts in its history - the water and sewer system has long been the pride of Indian Head citizens. The water and sewer system was originally installed about 80 years ago. The water is the best in the country. It comes from the Squirrel Hills and flows by gravity for about 10 km into town. In 1978 our sewage lagoon was enlarged and upgraded and should take care of our needs for the foreseeable future.

The town had the first rural dial telephone service in the province and was one of the first to have direct long distance calling.

The town had a power plant built and electricity installed throughout the town in 1906. Natural gas was installed in the town in 1960 and has proved very beneficial.
