Bay Island School

Fine Art, Landscapes, Moose Jaw, Rural Decay

Since 1919 the Bay Island school has weathered time on the bare Saskatchewan prairie near Old Wives Lake. It saw students come and go from 1919 to 1950.

My family and I spotted this place shortly after we moved back to the prairies while taking the back way to Gravelbourg. Now that I have found this little treasure, I will surely be going back to document its passage through time.

I found a fantastic post about this school written by Off the Beaten Path: http://www.bigdoer.com/16272/exploring-history/bay-island-one-room-school/

Entranced by rural and urban decay. I am drawn to these forlorn sites because they emote conflicting sentiments of beauty and disintegration.
