Description: This drawing, taken from Robertson's Landmarks of Toronto, shows the old stone school which was built in 1872. It replaced the previous frame school which was built in 1850 and burned down in 1872. The frame school had been built to replace the original log schoolhouse built in 1833 at the north-east corner of Joseph Cawthra's property, Lot 12, Conc 3, south of the Lakeshore Road. In 1889 the executors of the Cawthra estate turned over the property to School Section #7. In 1893 SS #7 was divided into two sections and a new one-room schoolhouse was built on the north side of Lakeshore Road, east of Cawthra Road. It was opened in 1894 as Lakeview Beach Public School and use of the stone school was discontinued. The building later became a private residence, until 1955 when it was demolished and replaced by a service station. From the Harold Hare Collection.
