Historic Sites of Manitoba: Haywood School No. 1193 (RM of Grey)

The Haywood School District was organized formally in June 1902 and as of 1944 a two-classroom schoolhouse operated at the southeast corner of SW21-8-6W in the Rural Municipality of Grey. Its district was dissolved in 1964 and the catchment area became part of the Dandurand Consolidated School District and later the Mountain School Division. At the time of a 2015 site visit, only the building’s concrete steps, the outline of its foundation, and a few remnants of the shelterbelt were visible.

Among the teachers of Haywood School was John D. Finlay.
