Historic Sites of Manitoba: Arnhold School No. 1618 (RM of St. Clements)

The Arnhold School District was established formally in April 1912, although it operated informally in the home of a local resident, and a one-room schoolhouse was bult in 1913 at SE30-15-6E in the Rural Municipality of St. Clements on two acres of land donated by Casper and Anna Ogonowski. In 1947, the school closed due to low enrollment and the district was dissolved in 1967. Its area became part of the Lord Selkirk School Division. In 2018, a commemorative sign was installed about 0.5 kilometres east of the former school site.
