Historic Sites of Manitoba: Elding School / Clarkleigh Consolidated School No. 1909 (RM of Coldwell)

Known originally as Elding School District No. 1659 when it was established in February 1913, a few months later it became Clarkleigh Consolidated School No. 1659. A school building operated at 27-18-5W in the Rural Municipality of Coldwell. In August 1921, it became Clarkleigh Consolidated School No. 1909 when it was consolidated with Campion School No. 1909, which had formerly operated a school at NW34-18-4W. After the school closed in 1967, the building was renovated into a private residence which, as of 2013, remains at the site.
