Edmonton's oldest schoolhouse, a wooden frame building. It was the first free public school in Alberta.

(Unknown School)
about 7 miles outside of Mannville, Alberta.
It is on a farm and has not been used as a school for many years. My mother attended there and she was born in 1908.  She rode to the school on a horse and I remember her telling how she had to start the fire in the school so had to be there early.

Arbordale
North of Lacombe
My Grandmother used to teach at two, one room schoolhouses in the area somewhere between the 30's and the 50's. One was called Arbordale? and the other was Westbranch, both a few miles north of Lacombe. We found the Arbordale School (name as remembered by my 80 yr. old father) which is the school he attended just a mile north of his parents farm. It is in bad shape and appears abandoned for the past 30 or so years.

Garden Plains? (SD 2941)
Garden Plains, near Scappa
This is a family photo of what appears to be a school house. The family lived in Garden Plains near Scappa, Alberta. We believe it may be the school house in Garden Plains. (SD 2941) The family surname was Beyer. I do not have any other information about this picture but thought someone in Alberta might identify it. If you have anyone who might recognize this building I would appreciate it.

South Wapiti
South Wapiti
Here's a couple of photos I took last Christmas Eve of the old school house in South Wapiti / Alberta. SW is is an old (very small and obscure) community south of Grande Prairie that's still populated mostly by families of the original pioneers. I believe it was - if not the last - one of the very last one room school houses to close. I and I believe my little brother Dale were in the last class to attend here.
