Boyne School

The one-room Boyne School, with its domestic proportions, hipped roof and raised basement, is a good example of one of Manitoba’s most popular standardized provincial school designs available in the post-World War I period.

Adapted from a 1912 cottage-style scheme, the school incorporates features that constitute a comfortable well-lit space, such as an obligatory bank of windows along one side of the classroom with transoms for air circulation, cloakrooms lit by side windows and a front storm porch. Saved through community efforts and used for social events, this designated place also is one of the few surviving examples in Manitoba of an intact country school site, complete with a fenced playground, flagpole and stable.

The site was designated on August 4, 1988, by the RM of Dufferin.

Location: originally located at NW 22-6-4W, it was moved in 2013 to the Dufferin Historical Museum, 44 Kings Park Rd, Carman.
