Lyon was the Ninth Line school custodian and these blueprints have survived because of his care and that of his family. Some of the school teachers boarded with the Lyon family. Between 1950 and 1970, Ontario school boards centralized the public schools in their jurisdiction, The old one or two room School Section schools were closed as multi-roomed modern schools were built. Maple Grove contains both the former S.S. No. 12 building as well as the "modern" addition stretching out to the right. You can see this in the linked TTHS image of this school taken in the 1960's. The Maple Grove Public School website has the history of the school, including building remodelling dates. Linked on the right side of this page for your further information.
