History[edit]

A post office was established in 1904 called Eyebrow Hill located just south in Sec.12, Twp.20, R.2, W3 of the Dominion Land Survey. Eyebrow Hill was renamed Eskbank in 1908. The post office of Eyebrow Station (Sec.24, Twp.21, R.2, W3) was established in 1908 then was renamed Eyebrow six months later.[1]

The Eyebrow Hills and Eye Lake are located north of the village (not to be confused with Eyebrow Lake located in the Qu'Appelle Valley near the village of Tugaske).[5]
