Historic Sites of Manitoba: Carlsborg School No. 1776 (RM of Armstrong)

The Carlsborg School District was established in February 1915 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NE1-17-1W in the Rural Municipality of Armstrong. The building was destroyed in a brush fire around Easter 1944, after which students from this area went to McFarlane School. The district remained in existence until 1964 when it was dissolved and its area was added to the Teulon Consolidated School District.

The teachers who worked at Carlsborg School included Mildred H. Gordon (1916), B. Curtis (1917), A. Rosenblad (1917), G. Coyle (1918), M. B. Nixon (1919), E. Matheson (1920), E. Cox (1920), W. Danielson (1921), R. Stewart (1922), W. L. Rankin (1923), Henry T. Nordin (1925), E. F. Peterson (1928), R. R. Sadler (1931), V. Werier (1933), C. Shoup (1935), R. R. McLaughlin (1936), H. Remple (1938), A. Main (1941), and Annie M. Jones (1943-1944).
