  • Notes 
    • The early log school that Ethel Rose McKnight taught in was rough, small and ill-equipped. Like other log schools of this period, Whitfield's school would have been built by the men from the school district who combined their efforts to construct a building measuring 20 by 22 feet. The spaces between the logs were often filled with mud and there were generally two or three windows in the log structure which provided the only light in the room. The interior of the school room was furnished with makeshift benches without backs located around the walls of the room. There was a crude fireplace which provided the only warmth, a table or desk for the master or teacher and a water pail and one cup.

      In 1863, at a cost of $607, one of the first brick school houses to be built in Cavan Township replaced the log school of 1841. A well was dug and there was a pump on the grounds. The minute books record the purchase of the blackboard in 1866. This advancement was probably made whenever a new brick school was built. From 1918 to 1930 Miss Ethel McKnight taught at Whitfield's. Many of her pupils earned the Baptie Scholarship for outstanding accomplishment. The building is now owned by the Lions Club.
    • Ethel Rose McKnight taught for twelve years at Whitfield school, (now the Lions Den). When she retired she received a highly complimentary letter of recommendation from Colonel O'DelI who was the Inspector of Public Schools all the time she taught. Many of her students received the coveted 'Baptie Scholarship' that was available at that time for the Township of Cavan.
