Historic Sites of Manitoba: Brodie School No. 1854 (Stead, RM of Alexander)

The Brodie School District was established in March 1917 and a one-room schoolhouse operated in the village of Stead in what later became the Rural Municipality of Alexander. In 1968, its area became part of the Agassiz School Division. After the school closed, the building was used as a community hall.
