The School Board Office in Kingston has a complete history and pictures of all 3 schools on Howe island, along with their history.

"Explore the history of early education in Frontenac County through our displays of school artifacts and memorabilia, photographs and textbooks. The Museum has an extensive archives and research collection on the history of the schools in Frontenac County. Visitors can sit in a wooden desk, write on a slate with a slate pencil or browse through an old Ontario reader."
