The Lister School District in the Rural Municipality of DeSalaberry was organized in September 1930 and a school was erected in the northeast quarter section of 24-4-5E. Renamed Lister East in July 1932, the district was divided in two in June 1942, the breakaway area being named Lister West School. The district became part of the Hanover School Division in January 1968 and classes ceased at this site with the end of the 1970-1971 school year.
