Historic Sites of Manitoba: Steinbach Collegiate Institute / Steinbach School No. 2 / Kornelsen Junior High School (304 Second Street, Steinbach)

Principals | Vice-Principals | Teachers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

This one-storey brick building, on Second Street in Steinbach, was built in 1936, at an estimated cost of $20,000, and used as a high school. It was known as the Steinbach Collegiate or Steinbach School No. 2, with the Kornelsen name not transferred here until 1964 when another school by this name was closed. The facility then became the Kornelsen Junior High School. Students were transferred out in 1972 with the new Steinbach Regional Secondary School. The renovated building has since been used as the public library and later to house the Steinbach Arts Council.
