You may think that country schoolhouses had only a few students. This elementary school, which was located on Rang du Haut-Saint-François in Saint-Vincent-de-Paul, proves otherwise. The countryside was much more populated than we might imagine today, and families were big in those days. Unfortunately, this building no longer exists. It was demolished around 1955.
