The Harrower School building was moved to this site in 1926. It operated here, on this site in the Rural Municipality of Strathclair, until it closed in 1960. Henceforth, students in the area were transported by bus to Oakburn Consolidated School No. 255 or Elphinstone Consolidated School No. 196. No vestige of the former school is present at the site.
Among the teachers of Harrower School was Nicholas Danyluk (1940-1942, 1946-1948).
