Statement of Significance

Description of Historic Place

The Etaples School is a Municipal Heritage Property located on one-half hectare of land approximately seven kilometres northwest of the Town of Edenwold. The property features a one-and-a-half storey, wood-frame, stucco-clad building constructed in 1927 attached to a one-and-a-half storey, wood-frame, quonset-style building completed in the mid-1980s.

Heritage Value

The heritage value of Etaples School lies in its association with the former community of Etaples. Etaples, named after a community in France, was settled by soldiers returning from the First World War. Local residents constructed this one-room schoolhouse in 1927 and it quickly became an important gathering place, hosting dances, receptions and meetings. Due to declining enrolment, the school ceased to be used for educational purposes in the 1960s and subsequently became a community hall. It is the only remaining building in Etaples.
