The Tankville School wooden school house is located adjacent to the Nature Park near the Tank house on the northeastern most boundary.
Graduates of Tankville School have saved their school from the wrecking ball and are now trying to raise enough money to give it a new life as a community centre. Shirley Cail and her three sisters were students here back in the 40s.
"Well, it's important to me," she says, "because it's my history and it is the history of the community. Tankville used to be a little place but it grew over the years, but not as fast as nearby areas."
The community hopes to raise enough money to add a museum and meeting place next to the school property within the next couple of years.
A post office was established on December. 22, 1859 and closed August 24, 1886. It was later reopened and then closed again September. 15, 1911. Lillian Gunning Butler was the last post-mistress. It was a busy place during the Christmas period each year as letters and parcels from nearby areas were sent through the Tankville Post Office.
