Stoney Creek School
Source: Mrs. C. Birnie

The first Stoney Creek School, a log structure, was opened for classes on 8 December 1881. It was the second school opened in the Neepawa area, and was situated two miles west of Neepawa on what is now Highway No. 16. The second school, shown in the 1901 photograph above, was built in 1897 and remained in use until 1950. In 1964 the building was sold to the Neepawa Lions Club, who moved it to its present location in Riverbend Park, Neepawa. In 1983 the Lions refurbished the building, and in celebration of the town's centennial Neepawa children again attended classes in it.
