Historic Schools: Welcome

JOURNEY INTO OUR HERITAGE

Learn more about the historic rural schools and visit the sites throughout Clearwater County

Local history books tell the stories of the early settlers and their determination to ensure children had the opportunity for schooling. Communities grew around the schools established within the provincial designations of school districts. While enabling formal education for the local youth, they also became the location for a wide variety of community functions. When no longer required for schooling, many buildings retained their function as community centers. Some were moved to new locations and repurposed. For example, they may have been renovated as private homes, churches, or lodges.


These markers provide permanent identification of locations of early schools. They honor the rich educational and cultural heritage of the communities in Clearwater County.
