Springwater School, October 31, 2015

This is unique. A one room schoolhouse build of stone and on a full basement. It is also a historic site. I knew nothing about this place. I was driving on Highway 9 towards Hanna, Alberta and I saw the sign that said "Historic Site 16km". A lot of times when you drive to these things you arrive to find a sign describing something at the side of the road. I figured that I would take the bait and turned north onto sixteen kilometres of rural gravel road.

This is kind of in the middle of nowhere. It is a stone building on a full basement. I doubt it is being used anymore. This is another one of those places that make aimless drives around the countryside worthwhile. 


  1. Oh, those windows!!!! And a cloak room, too! What a great find - almost looks like lt could be a church - just needs a steeple!
