Notable people[edit]

It is not known to many, but the Flag of Saskatchewan was originally created here, by a man named Anthony Drake a school teacher from Hodgeville. The Heritage Museum displays the flag, a Western Red Lily on a green and gold field, alongside Anthony's story.

The author of the song "There's a Bluebird on my Windowsill" was Elizabeth (née Huber) Clarke. She lived near Hodgeville, became a nurse, married Dr. Clarke in Hodgeville. After they moved to Vancouver, she nursed in the Children's Hospital. While there, she made up this song to sing to her little patients. "There's a Bluebird on my Windowsill" was picked up by the March of Dimes and used as their theme song. Elizabeth received Royalties from the song and donated them to the Children's Hospital. Her story is one of those proudly displayed in the Heritage Museum at Hodgeville.
