The Lockport School District was organized formally in July 1871 and a school building operated on Lot 110E in the Parish of St. Andrews, in what is now the Rural Municipality of St. Andrews. A one-room schoolhouse was constructed between 1922 and 1923 on a design by Winnipeg architect E. D. Tuttle. It closed around 1967 as jurisdiction for the area became the responsibility of the Lord Selkirk School Division. The former school buildings, dating from the early 20th century, were renovated into a private residence, now connected together into a single building.
