University Area Buildings

Little Stone School House Building

Little Stone School House (1887)

College Drive, U of S Campus

The Little Stone School House was built in 1887, at Broadway Avenue and 12th Street. Designed and constructed by local stonemason Alexander Marr, the one-room school was built with granite boulders from the surrounding prairie.

When Victoria School opened in 1909, the one-room school was dismantled and relocated, being rebuilt stone by stone in a quiet spot on the University of Saskatchewan grounds.

The University used the building for storage until 1965 when the Saskatoon Council of Women began restorations. The Little Stone School House reopened to the public on June 2, 1967, the same year that it was declared a historical site.
