Historic Sites of Manitoba: Artemesia School No. 1170 (Municipality of Grandview)

The Artemesia School District was organized formally in November 1901 and a school building operated on the northeast quarter of 32-25-23 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Municipality of Grandview. The school closed in 1967 and its remaining students went to Grandview Consolidated School No. 2447. The former school building was sold to a local farmer and moved to his farmyard. A stone monument commemorates it at the original site.
