Heward is a Village within the Rural Municipality of Tecumseh No. 65, in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. The village is located along highway 33 in southeastern Saskatchewan. Even though it has under 50 people it still maintains a post office, rink, and hall that all service the farming community. In 1977 Prairie Trails and Tales: Heward Saskatchewan 1900-1976 was written by Muriel Dempsey. The book goes into great detail about the families that lived in the community.

History[edit]

Bryce Dickey who was born in Heward in 1908 wrote a very extensive history of the village which is published in the summer 2007 issue of Folklore magazine. He describes how "Reverend Pike, an Englishman and a bachelor decided to build a new church and it was to be the same design and construction as one in England that had been lost to the sea due to coastal erosion. The chimes and font were from this church and were installed in the Heward church. When the church was finally closed, the chimes and font were sent to a church in Regina.[5]
