Historic Sites of Manitoba: Fillmore School No. 2170 (RM of St. Andrews)

The Fillmore School District was established formally in August 1927 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SW31-14-5E in the Rural Municipality of St. Andrews on land donated by Charles Wesley Fillmore, for whom the district was named. In 1963, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Clandeboye Consolidated School District No. 47 and later the Lord Selkirk School Division.

Among the teachers of Fillmore School were Anna Hollins Muckle Elliot (1927), Evelyn Riddell, C. J. Robson, Margaret Ekins, Ruth Barclay, Dorothy Sharpe, Freda Sanderson, Lily White, and Marie Peel (?-1945).
