Historic Sites of Manitoba: Beverley School No. 1344 (Municipality of Two Borders)

The Beverley School District was organized formally in June 1905 and, the following year, a one-room schoolhouse opened at the southeast corner of SW35-4-29W in what is now the Municipality of Two Borders. In 1912, it was moved to SW26-4-29W. The district was dissolved in 1946 and its area became part of the Tilston School District. The school building was moved beside the Tilston School where it was used for several years as an additional classroom. It was later renovated into a private residence and then became a workshop.

Among the teachers of Beverly School were Miss Roxy McBride (1906-1907), Miss Elma Bowers (1908), Gertrude Mason (1908), Lydia McDermot (1909), Mable Sterling (1910), and Miss Currie.
