The Rural Municipality of Stonehenge No. 73 originally began as a Local Improvement District in 1908 and became a RM in 1911. The first secretary-treasurer named the RM after the ancient monument known as Stonehenge where he had lived only miles from in England.
The RM encompasses approximately 985.74 square kilometers (approximately 250,000 acres of land) and includes the Village of Limerick and Hamlet of Congress within its boundaries with the Town of Assiniboia adjacent to the east border. Highway #13 runs east-west through the municipality. The 2021 Statistics Canada census confirmed the population to be 385 with 173 dwellings.
The RM is agricultural based, primarily cultivated land.
