Historic Sites of Manitoba: Valleyfield School No. 952 (RM of Stanley)

The Valleyfield School District was organized in April 1898. It operated a school building on the southeast quarter of 21-2-5 west of the Principal Meridian in the Rural Municipality of Stanley. The one-classroom building was replaced around 1945 by a wood frame and stucco structure which, in turn, was replaced in 1965 by the present building, brought here from a site in the Rural Municipality of Pembina south of Manitou. After the district joined the Western School Division No. 47 in 1969, the school closed and the building sat vacant for 17 years. Around 1987, it was renovated into a private residence.
