Charles School

Tiny school south of Nemiskam, Alberta. This was posted by another blogger and upon seeing it I just had to see it for myself. There is a book that has been scanned and posted online titled "Pioneering With a Piece of Chalk" which attempts to give a bit of history on every one room school that existed in Alberta. A lot of this history of places like this has been lost to time. Apparently this place started as a school in 1911. There is not information when it stopped operating. It is on private land nad still on its original location. If there were any signs of life at the neighbouring farm I would have asked if I could have got a closer look.
