Boain School October 15, 2016

Northwest of Hairy Hill, Alberta.

Somehow I managed to include powerlines in this photo. Not happy about that. The original school was built in 1910 and it burnt down in 1937. So it was replaced with a stone building which operated until 1950. Not a one room schoolhouse, it is a two room schoolhouse. Mainly Romanian and Ukrainian settlers in this area at the time. It is now a community hall.

Of course it recently snowed about six inches and drifted. I walked through snow to get some photos of this. If the weather had been better I would have better photos. Very unique.
