The Coultervale School District was established formally in June 1887. A school was erected on the southeast quarter of 16-1-27 west of the Principal Meridian, in what is now the Municipality of Two Borders. The original building was replaced in 1914 by the present one-storey, two-classroom yellow brick veneer structure, built at a cost of $4,800. In 1968, it became part of the Antler River School Division. In August 2000, the former school (which now serves as a community centre) became a municipally-designated historic site.
