Historic Sites of Manitoba: Grand Pre School No. 714 (RM of Cameron)

The Grand Pre School District was organized formally in June 1892 and, the following year, a one-room schoolhouse was built at E27-5-25W in the Rural Municipality of Cameron. It closed permanently in 1919 and the former school building was moved to a farm site at S26-5-25W. A second storey was added to the building there but it was removed in the 1940s. It was moved to Hartney in 1965 where it was used as a private residence.

The teachers of Grand Pre School were Miss Jessie Rawson (1893), Alberta Logan (1897), Miss Hammond (1903), Mr. Blakely (1904), Miss Parker (1905), Teressa Logan (1906), J. W. Sterling Duncan (1907), Lizzie Muirhead (1908-1909), Miss Middleton (1910), G. H. Johnston (1911), Muriel Nixon (1912), Dolly Metcalfe (1913), Myrtle Leonard (1914), Maizie Seebach (1914-1915), Blanch M. Graham (1916-1918), Ida B. LaLeir (1918), Edna G. Keeler (1918), and Lola M. Graham (1918-1919).
