Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bayfield School No. 525 / Bayfield United Church (Municipality of Prairie View)

A monument in the Municipality of Prairie View commemorates the Bayfield School No. 525, which operated near this site from 1888 and 1916 before being consolidated into Foxwarren Consolidated School No. 525. It also commemorates the Bayfield United Church (formerly Bayfield Presbyterian Church) which operated between 1912 and 1960. The former school building was moved to a farm north of Foxwarren and used as a private residence.

The teachers of Bayfield School included Emily Tibbatts (1888), H. M. Elliot (1889-1899), John A. Grant (1899-1901), Bella Cox (1902, wife of Arthur Meighen), Charles Brydon (1903-1904), W. M. Huskins (1904-1907), Florence Cameron (1907), Christine Grant (1908-1909), H. L. Brace (1909), Jeanne Leckie (1910-1911), Margaret Lecki (1912), Miss N.
