Historic Sites of Manitoba: Brampton School / Southend School No. 1158 (Municipality of North Norfolk)

In January 1902, the Southend School District was formally established in what is now the Municipality of North Norfolk. Known initially as Brampton School, the one-room frame structure was moved to a site on NE11-11-10 west of the Principal Meridian, in 1904. As Southend School, it served the area as an educational and social centre until 1964 when it was closed due to consolidation with MacGregor Consolidated School No. 2434. The former schoolhouse was moved to a farmyard about a half-mile to the south (about N49.90666, W98.71949) where it was used as a workshop. It was still standing, albeit in severely compromised condition, at the time of a 2012 site visit. A monument was dedicated at a ceremony on 2 July 1989 to students, teachers, and pioneers of the local area.
