Tolstoi School

District: Veregin
Province: Saskatchewan
Country: Canada
In 1929, Doukhobor settlers living three miles north of Veregin, Saskatchewan petitioned for the organization of a new school district. They proposed the name Tolstoi to commemorate Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoi (1828-1910), Russian novelist, social reformer and benefactor of the Doukhobors. The resulting Tolstoi School District No. 4730 was formed out of the existing Whitesand Valley School District. The rural school operated until 1960, when it amalgamated into the Kamsack School Division. [SE29-30-1-W2]
