ELGIN and AREA HERITAGE SOCIETY
The Red Brick School (1887) is a
restored Ontario Trust-designated building.
Built in 1887 to new provincial
guidelines, this building (SS#5, South Crosby) features increased window space,
amongst other features, intended to improve the learning atmosphere. It
served Elgin village children until 1963 when, with the closure of rural S.
Crosby schools, it was replaced by a larger facility.
Rescued and restored by the Elgin and
Area Heritage Society, its classroom provides "a living history experience" for
North Leeds students and a centre for the educational archives of Rideau Lakes
Events are scheduled at the schoolhouse
from May to December. Check our FaceBook page:
Elgin and Area Heritage Society for more information.
We look forward to seeing you.
