Personal Accounts and Memories of the East Wiltshire School

A one room schoolhouse
Bruce MacKinley, resident of Warren Grove attended the one room school house in East Wiltshire.  Bruce, or “Buddy” never attended the “new school” across the street.  He finished at East Wiltshire School around 1949.  The “old school” was located in front of the cemetery and was heated by a pot-bellied stove.  He would have to walk a mile and a half from his home to school every day.  At that time there were no houses on the Kingston Road other than the first two at the corner in North River.13
