St. Leo School

Former rural school that I ran across on January 28, 2017. In operation from 1903 to 1952. The roof is fairly new. It was used as a rural community centre and might still be one. I took a peek inside the door, someone has a bunch of stuff stored just inside the door.



The row of windows at the back are boarded up. That could just be for winter. 


The old pump is still on the school grounds. The snow had a hard crust on it and it mostly supported me walking on it. While walking around taking photos I stepped on a drift and broke through. It was deeper than it looked and I landed flat on my back. I did not hurt myself however I crammed in enough sightseeing for the day and cut it short.

    1. Slight mishaps. On this particular weekend I slipped and fell on my back at two separate location and got the car stuck at another spot.

  2. Can't tell you how much, I enjoy getting to see these country places and learn a little about them.

    1. Thanks. A few years ago I had the thought that even though I lived in Alberta I hadn't really seen Alberta.

    2. I went to a one room, first through 8th grades, school much like that one til the 6th grade. It was another Time, and another California...

    3. I never attended a one room school. My father did all the way up to Grade 9. Stuff like this is disappearing over time so I am trying to get out to see it.

  5. I really like this one as yellow is my favorite color... you don't often see schools painted that color... a spot of sunshine in a wintry scene.
