Welcome to the Village of Elbow

The Village of Elbow, Saskatchewan, Canada is situated halfway between Regina & Saskatoon on Highway 19, and right on Lake Diefenbaker. The village was originally called River View.  Its' name was changed to "Elbow" which got its name from the bend in the South Saskatchewan River, resembling a bent arm, on March 1, 1909 and was incorporated on April 6, 1909.  The first post office opened on April 1, 1906.
