Devonia Lake School S. D. # 3875 1921 – 1954
Devonia Lake is south and west of Lloydminster. Many of the early residents were from Devonshire, England. When the school district was being named, a vote was taken.
Quote from “Earnest Minded Men” –“The Devons Won “ The community had not felt the need for a school until the end of World War I.
A group of very interested former students and neighbors met at the school site on a rainy Sunday in June. Some were not sure of the exact location. Werner Wennekamp remembered that he rode his horse straight over a particular hill and the school was across the road at the bottom of the hill. We enjoyed the Wennekamp’s hospitality that day.
