General Wolfe School, named for the military general who won the battle at the Plains of Abraham for British forces, was constructed in 1920 by day labourers working for the Sutherland Construction Company. Designed by local architect J. N. Semmens, the one-storey, 16-classroom structure (with an assembly hall as the sole space on a small second storey) was designed to accommodate 720 students. Initially intended as an elementary school, at various times through its history, the building was used as a High School (later transferred to Daniel McIntyre Collegiate) and a Junior High School (tranferred from Greenway School).
