What follows is a history of the Eston School. Information has been taken from the Prairie West Historical Society history book and the writings of past Division Board Chairman and Provincial School Trustee, Lorne Byrnes.
Prior to 1916, Eston children of school age were transported daily to Guthrie School, two miles south. In 1916, the north part of Scarlett's Drug Store, on Main Street, was put into use as a classroom with Mr. Maddox as teacher. Some months later a new two‑room stucco schoolhouse was built near the site of the present elementary school.
By 1924, the growing number of children warranted the erection of a larger building and a four‑room brick building was built on a site west of the original school. Mrs. Nelda Willis, whose husband, Maurice, came to Eston as principal of the school in 1936, vividly recalls the school building.
