Village School & Visitor Information Grand Opening By: Kneehill Historical Museum
Come visit our newest building, opened August 7th, 2021 Where: Kneehill Historical Museum, 1301 2nd St. N.E. Three Hills
Come to the Three Hill's first school, built on the original site of the Town School. Ring the school bell, sit in a row desk, and experience the feeling of what a two room, Gr 1-8 school would have been like in the 1900's!
Restoring the original Village School to its original appearance has not been a simple task. This 107 year old building has known many functions, renovations and uses. Even though few alive today might remember this building's purpose as a school, so many citizens have been impacted by this building-- village office, court house and police detachment, firehall, RCMP office, even a jail to a daycare and more. The school was immediately over-populated with 120 students, such that immediate work after opening started for the four-room brick building that replaced it.. Come and celebrate this special preservation of history with us!
