I have stopped by this school a couple times before since it is close to home and I like it. Looking back I never posted it! Weird.
Little Red Deer is a typical looking one room schoolhouse but something about makes it one of my favourites. It's also one of the older ones I have seen, opening in 1896. There aren't too many from before 1900. Little Red Deer operated until 1955 and then became a community centre. In 1941, instead of creating another school district, Little Red Deer #2 was built nearby to accommodate senior students. This school closed in 1957 and became a residence.
A local group looks after the upkeep on Little Red School, ensuring it will be around as a reminder of our local history. They also host a barbecue here each summer. I have reached out to them and should be able to get inside the school later this spring.
