Coalfields School 1909 - 1962

January 1, 2016 near Beaver Mines, Alberta. Still used as a local community hall. It looks like brick on the outside but it is just a fake brick ashphalt or tarpaper siding. I have this dumb habit of going through the winter wearing nothing but running shoes. I really have to get some decent footwear if I am going to be doing some winter exploring.


  1. It does look like real brick! (Warm boots and extra socks are a MUST)!

  2. I grew up very close to here and was in the school several times when I was young. I remember the old overstuffed furniture as well as the blackboards. If you looked around, you could find chalk and school reading books. Happy to learn it is still there.
