Historic Sites of Manitoba: Stuartville School No. 795 (Municipality of Louise)

Stuartville School was established in November 1893, located at SW1-4-12 west of the Principal Meridian in the Municipality of Louise. It closed in July 1964 and it was consolidated with Pilot Mound School No. 105. The school building is no longer present at the site, having been demolished in 2012, but a metal sign dedicated at a reunion in 1994 commemorates it.

Among the teachers of Stuartville School was Lyra McQuarrie (1929-?).
