Historic Sites of Manitoba: Edillen School No. 1753 (RM of Lakeshore)

The Edillen School District was organized formally in June 1914 and a one-room schoolhouse was constructed at SW16-28-15W in what is now the Rural Municipality of Lakeshore. After the school closed permanently in June 1964, the building was sold to a local farmer, moved to a farm at SE16-28-15W and eventually taken apart to reuse its lumber.

Among the teachers of Edillen School were Miss Ramsen, Miss McGhie (1922), Ed Honhosier, Miss Indez Abbot, Claire McNeil Johnson, Mary Wallace, and Vivian Gray Didychuk.
