The Birtle Residential School
by Lilian Rose Smith
Fourth Year | Graduation year: 2019
The Birtle Residential School opened in 1894 and closed its doors in 1972. It is my intention to document the space to allow more to access it as a step towards reconciliation and acknowledgement of Canada’s troubled history.
