Historic Sites of Manitoba: Blaris School No. 358 (Municipality of Prairie View)

A metal sign marks the former site of Blaris School in the Municipality of Prairie View. Established formally in January 1885, a school building was erected on the southeast quarter of 25-14-26 west of the Principal Meridian. It became part of the Miniota Municipal School District in 1919 and closed in 1949. The school building is no longer present at the site.
