Historic Sites of Manitoba: Millerway School No. 250 / St. Andrews Presbyterian Church (Municipality of Grassland)

A monument in the Municipality of Grassland commemorates the Millerway School District, established formally in June 1883 and allegedly named for founding secretary-treasurer C. W. Miller and its first teacher, Miss Way, who became romantically connected. The district was dissolved in 1912 and its catchment area became part of the Elgin Consolidated School District.

Also commemorated is the former St. Andrews Presbyterian Church that opened with a service on 7 August 1898. When the church closed, the building was gifted to the congregation of Regent United Church. Its pews were taken to a new Virden Baptist Church and the congregants attended services at Souris, Hartney, or Elgin.
