Historic Sites of Manitoba: Birdina School No. 1915 (RM of Alonsa)

The one-room school building operated by the Birdina School District in the Rural Municipality of Alonsa was moved to this site in 1959, from a site nearby. It closed in 1959 and the building was moved away. Only its concrete foundation remains at the site. A monument commemorates the former school.
