Historic Sites of Manitoba: Czerwona School / Tolstoi School No. 1224 / Tolstoi School No. 1 (Tolstoi, Municipality of Emerson-Franklin)

Link to:
Principals | Vice-Principals | Teachers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

Known originally as Czerwona School District when it was established formally in March 1903, a one-room schoolhouse was built in what is now the Municipality of Emerson-Franklin. In December 1916, the district took out a $1600 debenture to construct and outfit a new schoolhouse, and in October 1918, another $600 for a teacherage. In 1922, the school was situated along the northern boundary of NW35-1-5E (1922), and the capacity expanded in 1923 to include a second room. The district was renamed Tolstoi following the First World War, some time between 1919 to 1923. In 1935, the district opened a second school within its catchment area. By 1944, this school later operated at NE36-1-5E (around 49.08583, -96.78677). Both schools remained in operation until the district became part of the Boundary School Division in 1967, and closed shortly thereafter in 1968. The school building was later relocated to Tolstoi and converted for use as a community seniors’ centre.
