Historic Sites of Manitoba: Balfour School No. 1838 (RM of Shellmouth-Boulton)

The Balfour School District was organized formally in July 1916 and a school building was subsequently erected on the southeast quarter of 1-22-27 west of the Principal Meridian in the Rural Municipality of Boulton. With school consolidation through the 1960s, it closed in 1966. The building is no longer at the site but a monument commemorates it.
