Historic Sites of Manitoba: Tuckersmith School No. 1395 (RM of Silver Creek)

The Tuckersmith School District was organized formally in August 1906, named for Tuckersmith County in Ontario from which the Angus family, early pioneers in the area, had originated. A school building was erected the following year on the northeast quarter of 8-21-26 west of the Principal Meridian in the Rural Municipality of Silver Creek. It closed in 1963 and remaining students went to Angus School No. 1487. The building is no longer at the site but a monument erected in July 1998 commemorates it.
