SS #6, Waupoos

Former students, teachers and families of SS #6 Waupoos attended an unveiling of photographs dating back to 1900, donated to the North Marysburgh Recreation Centre’s collection.

Photographs on display last weekend also included Waupoos champion sports teams, the school’s bell and other artifacts. The school stood for more than 100 years and was closed, then demolished when all the SS schools were consolidated at North Marysburgh Centennial Central School near Lake-on-the-Mountain in 1967.

The photographs were donated by County resident and historian John Lyons, the Quinte Education Museum & Archives, the Prince Edward County Archives and several other citizens. Visitors also viewed the Quinte Education Museum & Archives’ new book ‘The Educational Tapestry; The History of Marysburgh’s One Ro0m Schoolhouses 1800-1966’.

SS-Waupoos-unveiling-1John Lyons explains the significance of photographs in the display. Two dozen framed photos were laid out on three long tables in chronological order. He also displayed two dozen plastic-sleeved, paper Picton Gazette and Times annual class grad lists from his personal collection.

The framed photos are to be put up on the wall of the North Marysburgh Recreation Centre for visitors to view.
