Jake's Butte School 1913

One of the few schools that does not have a marker, which is a bit odd as the historical society in this area was pretty thorough about tagging places with little plaques. I had driven past this at various times. I never knew what school it was until someone filled me in. There are lots of places in this area where the remains of one room schools dot the prairie. 

Last summer I stopped and looked inside. Someone lived in it at one time, there was an old couch inside. It is right beside Highway 589 east of Big Valley, Alberta.


  1. Nice find, BW. It sounds like there's lots to see in that area.

  2. School houses dot the prairie, markers of our changing world.
