Historic Sites of Manitoba: Nobleton School No. 1119 (RM of Thompson)

The Nobleton School District was formally organized in March 1901 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SW32-5-6W in the Rural Municipality of Thompson. In 1917, the building was destroyed by fire and the district was dissolved, its area becoming part of the Miami Consolidated School District. A commemorative sign at the site was installed by the Carman/Dufferin Municipal Heritage Advisory Committee.

Among the teachers who worked at Nobleton School were Mary Ritcher (1901), Amy M. Ramsay (1905), J. C. Victor Fraser (1906), Edna Fraser (1906-1909), Robert D. McKenzie (1908), Margaret McKay (1909), S.Beatrice Umphrey (1910), Rachel Affleck (1911), Myrtle M. Berry (1912), Beulah Beryl McNevin (1913), Margaret Taylor (1913-1915), R. Ro--ston (1915), I.
