The two-storey brick and stone school building on Louise Avenue in Brandon was designed by architect William Alexander Elliott and constructed in 1906-1907. Originally intended to be built with Edrans Brandon Pressed Brick Company, for which a brick contract was secured in April 1907, by September the Brandon School District withdrew the order on account of insufficient production capacity and instead placed an order for 65,000 bricks from the Menomonie Brick Company. The existing Edrans brickwork was then removed as to ensure uniformity in appearance and construction. Foundation work was completed in June 1907. An official opening ceremony on 1 September 1908 was attended by Minister of Education George Robson Coldwell, Mayor Stephen Emmett Clement, and Collegiate Inspector Alexander McIntyre. The building was expanded in 1963 and, eleven years later, it was converted from a high school to an elementary school, receiving the students from the former New Central School, and was renamed New Era School.
