Historic Sites of Manitoba: Beulah School No. 162 (Beulah, Municipality of Prairie View)

Link to:
Principals | Vice-Principals | Teachers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A metal sign marks the former site of Beulah School in what is now the Municipality of Prairie View. Established formally in February 1882, a school operated here from 1883 to 1911, when it was moved into the village of Beulah immediately to the northwest. Two years later, it became part of the Miniota Consolidated School District No. 680. In 1921, a four-classroom brick structure was constructed on a design by Winnipeg architect E. D. Tuttle. The Beulah School building was later moved to Birtle by the Birdtail River School Division for use as additional classroom space at Birtle School.
