Historic Sites of Manitoba: Maitland School No. 802 (Municipality of Glenella-Lansdowne)

The Maitland School District was established formally in October 1893, and a school building was erected on the southwest quarter of 2-18-12 west of the Principal Meridian in what is now the Municipality of Glenella-Lansdowne. With growing student enrollment, a second larger building was erected in October 1913. The school closed in December 1967 and its remaining students went to Plumas Consolidated School No. 88. The building is no longer present at the site but a monument dedicated on 10 August 1996 commemorates it. A building model and a school bell in a glass case top the monument.
