Historic Sites of Manitoba: Kelloe School No. 574 (Kelloe, RM of Yellowhead)

The Kelloe School District was organized formally in April 1889 and a one-room school building operated at SW30-17-24W in what is now the Rural Municipality of Yellowhead, on land donated by G. C. Hall. In 1927, the school inspector recommended that a new school building be constructed so, in 1928, a new structure opened at NE19-17-24W. In 1938, the original building was moved into the village of Kelloe and renovated into a community hall. The school closed in 1964 and its remaining students went to Shoal Lake Consolidated School No. 2352. The building was moved to a farm near Foxwarren where it was used as a residence. A sign commemorates it at the earlier site.

Among the teachers who worked at Kelloe School were Charles S. Castell (1890), W. H. Crosfield (1898-1899), Daniel Baldwin (1890s), and Peter L. Hyde.
