Historic Sites of Manitoba: Aston Villa School No. 1727 (Faulkner, RM of Grahamdale)

The Aston Villa School District was established formally in March 1913 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NE17-28-9W in what would later become the Rural Municipality of Grahamdale. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Lakeshore School Division. The former school building stands near the original site, on the opposite side of the road, at N51.39629, W98.67873. School registers are on display at the nearby Faulkner Community Centre (N51.42216, W98.66485).
