Petrofka was a major first settlement of Russian Doukhobors who came to Canada in 1899 and settled throughout Western Canada. Near here, they wintered in homes dug into the river bank. Petrofka Village site was well-chosen, near a spring (now Petrofka Spring) and a good river crossing (now Petrofka Bridge). Near the village, there was a flour mill on Radouga Creek , a cemetery and a school (Petrofka School District No. 23). RHPRI acknowledges the support of the Saskatchewan Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport in permitting us to place information signs and picnic tables at the Petrofka Spring Site.
