Cleverville, Alberta June

Highway 529 just a little east of Champion, Alberta. The school marker and the stone monument are side by side. The marker notes that Harvard School, a one room schoolhouse, once stood one mile south of here and operated from 1907 to 1914. So in a sense I can say I have been to Harvard.


The stone marker says there was a town called Cleverville that only existed from 1906 to 1910. Since the town only lasted a short time it was not the best choice of name. I have consulted my usual sources and cannot find any information on Cleverville.
