Historic Sites of Manitoba: Scott’s Hill School No. 2261 (RM of Whitemouth)

The Scott’s Hill School District was established in June 1935 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NE4-12-12E in the Rural Municipality of Whitemouth. After the school closed, the former school building was sold and it stood vacant at the time of a 2013 site visit. It had fallen when the site was revisited in 2020.

Among the teachers of Scott’s Hill School through the years were Neilona Mary Chatfield (1936-1938), Lois Cautley Lund (1938-1940), Stefania G. Eyford (1940), Emma Louise Hadley (1941), Isobel Margaretta Grierson (1941-1942), Phylis Rowena Birkett (1942-1943), Edith Grace Irvine (1943-1944), Jean Margaret McLeod (1944-1945), Mary Evelyn Pearson (1945-1946), Ada M. Kern (1946-1947), Juanita T. Bakke (1947-1948), Hazel Evelyn Kolton (1948-1949), and John Howk (1950).
