The Mulvihill School District was established formally in September 1911 and a schoolhouse operated in Mulvihill in the Rural Municipality of Grahamdale. The original building was overcrowded by 1928 so a second one-room building was constructed. A third two-classroom school was built in 1940. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Lakeshore School Division. Nothing remained at the time of a 2014 site visit.
