Earl Kitchener School: 100 Years Later

It was 100 years ago on July 20, 1916 that the cornerstone was laid for the Earl Kitchener School in Medicine Hat, Alberta. As many of you know, especially if you follow my content, that old school has since been renovated into a private residence. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to photograph that transformation over the last couple years, by chance, after I met the owners when they purchased a few images that I'd shot of the building as a vacant school.

In addition to capturing a few casual shots, I thought this would actually be an opportune time to share the collection of posts that I've done about this incredible property. I can't say enough about how amazing the work they've done to reinvent this space really is. I also can't downplay how wildly popular the posts I've done about Earl Kitchener have been, with literally tens of thousands of people viewing and sharing them. 

Explore these previous posts for yourself to see why that might be:
