Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hartley School No. 878 (RM of St. Andrews)

Known as the Gunnville School District when it was established in July 1896, a one-room schoolhouse operated at NW12-16-3E in the Rural Municipality of St. Andrews. It was later renamed Hartley School, possibly in honour of school inspector W. C. Hartley. After the school and the district was dissolved, in 1967, the former school building was moved to the Teulon Museum.
