Map showing location of Patrick Saskatchewan

Lipton is a Village, corner of Hwy 22, and 35
Lipton was a Jewish Colony, started over 100 years ago, in 1901.
I don't think Patrick is a Jewish name, so no idea where the name came from.

Looks to me like Patrick would be just north of Highway 10 between Fort Qu'Appelle and Balcarres

Lat- 50° 52' North
Long- 103° 42' West

Located in School District # 2931

Patrick Saskatchewan Railroad Siding

Local Contacts
Received an email Apr 16, 2005, from Jim Hartman, who farms NE 15 22 13 2, near Patrick,
which was bought by his father, Fred Hartman, after WWII.
He tells me the rail line was still there, but no more trains, so he expected the line rails would be removed shortly.
