History / Biography
Arnprior was first settled by Europeans in 1825 when Archibald McNab brought 80 settlers from Scotland to the township he named after himself. In 1862, Arnprior was incorporated as a village and in 1892, it was incorporated as a town. The population grew as Arnprior provided employment through its various industries, most notably the McLachlin Mills, the Kenwood Mills, the Canadian Public Booth Co., M. Sullivan and Son, Pfizer and Scheel Windows to name only a few. Over the years, Arnprior has grown into a thriving community providing its residents with a wide range of social and public services.

Description
This was the third school house which was built for the students of White Lake in 1889. In the early 1900’s the school drew older students from a wide area including Springtown, Burnstown and Waba as it offered a “Continuation School” which would be equivalent to a junior high school program today. No other schools in McNab Township offered classes beyond Grade 8 at that time. It contained two classrooms which were heated with hardwood purchased from local farmers. Students gathered water in a pail from the Waba creek which ran behind the property as there was no running water until 1964. The building was painted white and at one time the trim was painted dark green. Throughout the years, school socials and performances were conducted to raise funds for improvements and maintenance of the building. The wooden floor boards were painted and waxed until at least 1957 when the Trustees noted that linoleum would be a suitable floor covering. The same report lists a total school population of only 18 (6 students in Grades 5 & 6, 3 students in Grade 7 & 8). In the period 1870-1920, there were as many as 45 students attending this school. When the new McNab Public School opened in 1967, this school was closed. In about 1978, the “White School” burned down and a residence now occupies the site. It was located on the east side of the Arnprior-White Lake Road, north of Waba Creek on what was known to local residents as “school hill”.
