A church was located at the other end of the adjacent corn field which was relocated from the south during the 1800’s.

The outline of the old Grand Trunk Rail Line can be seen by satellite view just north at a northeast angle from the town of Ailsa Craig.

Today the school house is demolished, leaving only memories in it’s remains.
