Historic Sites of Manitoba: Elgin School No. 318 (RM of Yellowhead)

The Elgin School District was organized formally in July 1885 and a one-room school operated at SE5-6-21W in the Rural Municipality of Strathclair (now the RM of Yellowhead). The district was dissolved in 1913 and its catchment area became part of the Strathclair Consolidated School District.

Among the teachers of Elgin School was Percy D. Harris (1891).
