Historic Sites of Manitoba: Grassie School (Grassie Boulevard, Winnipeg)

In 1921, a wood frame, one-classroom school building with basement was constructed on the north side of Grassie Boulevard, just west of Plessis Road, in the Rural Municipality of North Kildonan (now part of Winnipeg). Built at a total cost of $5,000, the school opened in the fall of 1921, with 28 students from grades 1 to 7 under teacher-principal Daniel Windsor (1863-1957). The following year, Windsor had 29 students in his classroom. The school was closed as a cost-cutting measure in 1923 and it never reopened. No vestige of the former school remains at the site.
