Historic Sites of Manitoba: Blue Wing School No. 2245 (RM of Shellmouth-Boulton)

The Blue Wing School District was established in March 1934, named for the nearby Blue Wing Lake, and a one-room wood frame schoolhouse operated at NE26-24-27W in what would later become the Rural Municipality of Shellmouth-Boulton. The school closed in 1966, the district was dissolved the following year, and its area became part of the Intermountain School Division. The former school building is no longer present at the site but a metal sign commemorates it.
