Pipestone was a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. Located in southeastern Saskatchewan, this district was created as "Whitewood" before the 1st Saskatchewan general election in 1905. In 1908 the riding was redrawn and renamed "Pipestone", after the Pipestone Creek that flowed through the district.

This constituency was abolished before the 8th Saskatchewan general election in 1934. It is now part of the Moosomin constituency.
