Maplewood School District No. 662 was formally established in April 1890, and a school was built at this site (19-13-22W) in what is now the Rural Municipality of Oakview. In May 1917, the school was consolidated into Oak River Consolidated School No. 253, along with Bankburn School No. 1098, Oak River School No. 253, and Wheatland School No. 304. No remains of the school are visible at its former site, other than a commemorative monument erected in 1984.
