Historic Sites of Manitoba: Blumenfeld School No. 2137 (Blumenfeld, RM of Stanley)

The Blumenfeld School District was established in August 1925 and a one-room schoolhouse operated in Blumenfeld (SE20-1-4W) in the Rural Municipality of Stanley. The district was later dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Stanley School Division.

Among the teachers at Blumenfeld School were Jacob Friesen (1942-1943) and Carl Leo Pokrant (1940-1942).
