#FABTRIP21: Hilda and Schuler
Earlier in the summer I took a quick trip with the family to see some sites of interest in Happyland, the friendliest little M.D. in Saskatchewan. Along the way we passed through the extremely photogenic corner of the dry belt that is home to Hilda and Schuler. Schuler is still very much alive and kicking, and Hilda never disappoints. The Big 10-4 in Leader makes a wicked Twister as well.
“Norman Banks (Tim) Schuler came to the Schuler district in the spring of 1910, settled on a homestead and began farming. In the fall he was given the post office and named it Schuler. In 1923 the CPR was built and stopped where Schuler is presently located and the post office was moved.”

I’m trying to find the identity of a house I found in my cousins picture collection of their time in British Block/Alderson area that was called the Mailman house. I’m thinking this was something to do with Alderson. My uncle John (Jack) Hulland bought or leased some land from a 90 year old man outside of Alderson perhaps in 1942 after the expropriation.
Great images! Those are 2 places I haven’t been yet.
Hey Jenn, they’re definitely worth the trip, Hilda especially. A dream for photo buffs.
