The Stanstead Historical Society was founded in 1929 in the century old school house –the Mansur School House– a historic landmark that remains under the Society’s care. The Mansur school was built in 1819 as a wooden structure, by 1844 it had become a brick building. The school was built on land donated by Daniel Mansur.
