Historic Sites of Manitoba: New Hamburg School / Bayton School No. 1787 (RM of Grahamdale)

Known originally as the New Hamburg School District when it was organized formally in April 1915, it was renamed Bayton during the First World War, probably due to anti-German sentiment at the time. A one-room schoolhouse operated at SE19-27-8W in what became 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 is no longer present at the site and a new building has replaced it.

Among the teachers of Bayton School were Annie E. Anderson (1918), William H. Lucow (1938-1939), Jean Scott (195-1936), Marion Winnifred Gereng (1961-1962), Lea A. D'Hoore (1962-1963), and Margaret Laughlen (1963-1964).
