Historic Sites of Manitoba: Braddock School No. 2136 (RM of Yellowhead)

The Braddock School District was organized formally in July 1925, and a school building operated on the northeast quarter of 30-18-22 west of the Principal Meridian in what is now the Rural Municipality of Yellowhead. It closed in 1962 and was moved a half kilometer northwest to its present site. As of 2012, the building stands vacant. A commemorative monument has been erected on the former school grounds (about N50.57564, W100.48541).
