Aneroid (2006 population 45) is a special service area in Auvergne Rural Municipality No. 76 in southwestern Saskatchewan, Canada. The community is located approximately 70 km southeast of Swift Current at the intersection of highway 13 & Grid 612.

Demographics[edit]

Prior to December 31, 2008, Aneroid was incorporated as a village, and was restructured as a special service area under the jurisdiction of the Rural municipality of Invergordon on that date.[1][6]

History[edit]

The most popular version of the origin of the name is that the first survey party lost its aneroid barometer on the present townsite.[8] Many of the streets in the village are named after surveyor's instruments.[8]

The post office was established as Val Blair on February 1, 1911 and renamed Aneroid on December 1, 1913. Formerly a village, Aneroid was restructured as a special service area on December 31, 2008, under the administration of R.M. Auvergne No. 76.

Significant remaining historic buildings in the community include the 1915 Public School and the 1926 United Church. The two-storey, brick Public School was designed by Stanley Edgar Storey, one of the most significant architects in Saskatchewan;[9] it operated from 1915-97. The red-brick church was designed by architect Charles Nicholson and built in 1926.[10]
