Historic Sites of Manitoba: Carter Avenue School / Presbyterian Mission / Talbot Avenue United Church (985 Talbot Avenue, Winnipeg)

To meet the educational needs of Ward 7 in the Elmwood suburb of Winnipeg, space was acquired by the Winnipeg School Division at the same site of a recently established Presbyterian Mission around June 1909. Located on the north side of Carter Avenue (now Talbot Avenue), between Kent Street and Birds Hill Road (now Panet Road), it was a single-teacher school for all but its final year of operation, with Annie Elizabeth Templeman (1909-1916) and Dorothy Clayton (1915-1916). The school closed with the opening of nearby George V School in February 1916 and both of its teachers moved there. The building saw continued use as a Presbyterian Mission, later serving as the Talbot Avenue United Church in the 1940s. The building was demolished in the early 1950s and private residences were built at the site.
