Historic Sites of Manitoba: Gordon Bell High School (Broadway, Winnipeg)

Link to:
Principals | Vice-Principals | Teachers | Photos & Maps | Sources

In 1926, a new school was built at the corner of Maryland Street and Wolseley Avenue in Winnipeg. Intended as a Junior High School, it was named Gordon Bell School in commemoration of physician Gordon Bell. It became a Senior High School in 1932. When a new structure for senior students was erected on Broadway in 1956, adjacent to Mulvey School No. 3, the Gordon Bell name was given to the new school, and Mulvey School No. 3 was demolished.
