Preeceville RM History
The RM which is 100 years old was incorporated January 1, 1913 from Local Improvement District 334.
The original office was situated on Main Street where the Century house is currently located which burned down in 1946 and was rebuilt at that same location. The building was purchased and currently sitting on the property of Donald and Lisa Moekerk. The lot was traded with Mr. Grimsrud for the lot where the office currently sits. The current office was built in 1964.
