Historic Sites of Manitoba: Cedar Grove School No. 2152 (RM of La Broquerie)

The Cedar Grove School District was established formally in May 1926 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE26-5-8E in the Rural Municipality of La Broquerie. The building was destroyed by fire on 18 February 1952. It was rebuilt and operated until 1962 when it closed permanently. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its catchment area became part of the St. Joachim Consolidated School District No. 2378 and later the Seine River School Division.

Among the teachers of Cedar Grove School were Miss Shingleton, Annie Davies (1935-1936), Viola Black (1938-1939), and Mrs. R. Wells (1962).
