Historic Sites of Manitoba: Anderson School No. 156 (RM of Roland)

The Anderson School District was organized formally in June 1884. A one-room school building was constructed in NE31-4-4W in the Rural Municipality of Roland. The school closed in 1947 and the building was sold, moved across the road to NE36-4-5W, and used as a granary. The district was dissolved in January 1954.

Among the teachers of Anderson School were William Foster (1884) and Marjorie Wilkinson (1947).
