St. Catherine's School

I was out to the rolling hills of St. Catherine's (9 miles SW of Charlottetown - there's another St. Catherines up near Souris) late yesterday afternoon - here's the old schoolhouse located on the corner of St. Catherine's Road and Stutvoet Drive.
There's been a school here since 1865 (cf. Geographical Place Names of PEI).  The building could be from this period as the roof pitch and narrow trim around the door and 6-over-6 window next to it are typical of the period.
