The Hilton School District was established formally in February 1885 and a school building was later erected in the northeast corner of 20-6-16 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Strathcona. The school closed in January 1961 and its remaining students went to Wawanesa Consolidated School No. 2393. The building is no longer on the site but a monument commemorates it.
