Historic Sites of Manitoba: Centreville School No. 606 (RM of Victoria)
Centreville School was established in May 1889 in the southeast quarter of 6-8-10 west of the Principal Meridian in the Rural Muncipality of Victoria. Its name was based on its location mid-way between the towns of Treherne and Holland. A building was constructed the next year, at a cost of $600, on an acre of land leased from local farmer Frank Seibert. The school closed in January 1959 and the students were bussed to Treherne Consolidated School No. 537 or Holland Consolidated School No. 393. The Centreville School building was moved in March 1960 to the Manitoba Agricultural Museum, along with a plaque commemorating students on Centreville School who were killed during the First World War. In 1995, a monument at its former site was dedicated to the pioneers, school trustees, teachers, and students of the district.
Among the teachers of Centreville School was Miss Agnes Jamieson (1905).
