Historic Sites of Manitoba: Agriculture School No. 1802 (RM of Grahamdale)

The Agriculture School District was organized formally in August 1915 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NW34-23-5W in the Rural Municipality of Woodlea, in what later became the Rural Municipality of Grahamdale. In 1936, the district became part of the Woodlea Municipal School District.

Among the teachers at Agriculture School were Sophie Szwaluk (1941-1942), Peggy Florence Karlowsky (1942-1943), and Esther Marie Mallerson (1945-1946).
