Historic Sites of Manitoba: Amsterdam School No. 885 (RM of Rhineland)

The Amsterdam School District was established in June 1896 and a schoolhouse operated at SE35-2-1W in the Rural Municipality of Rhineland. In 1965, the district became part of the Rosenfeld Consolidated School District No. 885, with a schoolhouse located at the same site. It eventually became part of the Rhineland School Division.
