Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hullett School No. 700 (RM of Killarney-Turtle Mountain)

The Hullett School District was established formally in May 1892, named by local settlers from Hullett County in Ontario. A school building was erected at SW28-3-16W in what is now the Rural Municipality of Killarney-Turtle Mountain. It closed in 1967, the remaining students going to Killarney School No. 252, and the district was dissolved in 1968. The school building is no longer on the site but a metal sign commemorates it.

Among the teachers of Hullett School were Lilian Beynon and Elaine Dagg (1967).
