Historic Sites of Manitoba: Prince Charles School (2177 Springfield Road, RM of Springfield)

Located in the North Springfield School District, the Prince Charles School was built to replace the North Transcona School / Beaman School. The district acquired this three-acre site in 1950 from Frances J. Patterson and Thomas Patterson and a school was built in 1952 by the Watchler Manufacturing Company of Winnipeg. It was opened officially on 29 August 1952 at a ceremony led by local notable Thomas R. George, with guests including Education Minister W. C. Miller, Deputy Education Minister R. O. MacFarlane, Administrative Officer B. Scott Bateman, and School Inspector C. J. Muller, Reeve S. G. Smith, Councillor Matheson, School District Chairman C. L. Holland, School Trustee B. Staszenski, and Secretary-Treasurer S. Maslovsky. The school was closed in 1968, sold, and converted into a private residence.
