Neilburg is small village located in mid-west Saskatchewan. The local population is approximately 500 people. A grade K–12 school is located in the town that services the Neilburg area as well as grade 7–12 students from Marsden. In 1999 crop circles were discovered in a field near the town.[7]

Neilburg was named after an early settler, Clifford O’Neil. The first post office was in his home and was located about one mile southeast of where the village is today. Neilburg was established as a hamlet in 1923 and by 1946, it had grown big enough to be incorporated as the Village of Neilburg. The population was 448 in 2011.[8]
