Markham Abandoned School House circa 1902

Located just north of the ever expanding Markham and Richmond Hill area sits this abandoned Section School No.7. It was accessible, yet well boarded up, minus an open basement door. An original picket fence section ran along the back of the property, and I could almost sense the ghosts of children playing on the grounds. School sections were created and financed through the tax base of neighbouring farms. The building appeared to be in good condition and a great candidate for preservation. It's future is not known.


  1. This is close to me! Could you tell me the closest intersection? Thanks so much!

  2. I have pics of this old school-house taken this year: July 2014, it still stands...
