Historic Sites of Manitoba: Tummel Consolidated School No. 1319 (Tummel, Municipality of Roblin)

Principals | Vice-Principals | Teachers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

The Tummel Consolidated School District was established in August 1913, in Tummel district of what is now the Municipality of Roblin, through the consolidation of three smaller school districts from the surrounding area: Brook’s Grove School No. 544 (also known as Greenridge School No. 544), Stirling School No. 1208, and Fife School No. 1319 (also known as Tummel School No. 1319). The one-classroom schoolhouses from the three districts were moved to a central location when they continued to be used until 1930, when a new four-classroom wood frame and stucco structure was erected at the site. This school was used until 1967 when its district became part of the Goose Lake Consolidated School District. The building was used as a granary for a time and later demolished, and a private residence was built there. There is no commemorative monument or sign at the site of the former school. A 100th anniversary reunion was held in 2013.
