Historic Sites of Manitoba: Belton School No. 370 (Municipality of North Cypress-Langford)

The Belton School District was established in February 1885 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SW16-13-16 in what later became the Municipality of North Cypress-Langford. In June 1919, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Brookdale Consolidated School District No. 1299. The former school building was moved to NE14-13-16W and used as a stable.

Some of the teachers who worked at Belton School were Dora C. Gilman (1907), Miss Beach, Miss Clark, Duncan Martin, and Millie Ducklow (circa 1919).
