Historic Sites of Manitoba: Badger School No. 640 (RM of Roland)

The Badger School District was established in April 1891. A one-room wood frame school operated at NE10-4-4W in the Rural Municipality of Roland. The district was dissolved in 1955 when its catchment area was combined with the Roland Consolidated School No. 2348 or Rosewell School No. 1071. A later school building stands at SW15-4-4W and has been renovated into a private residence.

Among the teachers of Bracken School was Laura Anne Orchard.
