Historic Sites of Manitoba: Belair School No. 2165 (RM of Alexander)

The Belair School District was organized formally in January 1927 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at the southeast corner of SW9-19-7E in what later became the Rural Municipality of Alexander. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Lord Selkirk School Division.
