Historic Sites of Manitoba: Lyonshall School No. 223 (RM of Killarney-Turtle Mountain)

The Lyonshall School District was established formally in 1883 and a one-classroom wood frame school building was erected on the southwest quarter of 34-2-18 west of the Principal Meridian, in what is now the Rural Municipality of Killarney-Turtle Mountain. The school closed in 1966 and its district was dissolved the next year, and its catchment area was divided between the Ninga School District No. 485 and Killarney School No. District 252. The school building is no longer present at the site but a metal sign commemorates it.

Among the teachers of Lyonshall School were Mary Reeves (1883), Kathleen Elizabeth Chambers Armstrong, and Mrs. May Bartley (1966).
