A monument in the Rural Municipality of WestLake-Gladstone marks the location of the Hollywood School from 1904 to 1963. The school district was formed in 1903. A lumber school was built on the site, SE20-17-9W, in 1904 and was used until 1954 when another school a teacherage was built. It was used continuously until the school ceased operation in 1963. These buildings also served as a center for Christmas concerts, dances, picnics, and other community events. In 1967, the Hollywood School District was dissolved and its catchment area was added to the Langruth Consolidated School District.
