Historic Sites of Manitoba: Cherry Valley School No. 1181 (Municipality of Norfolk Treherne)

The Cherry Valley School District was established formally in March 1902. In August 1902, a one-room schoolhouse opened in the southeast quarter of 32-8-8 west of the Principal Meridian in what is now the Municipality of Norfolk Treherne. It closed in February 1961 and its catchment area was merged into the Rathwell Consolidated School District No. 578. A monument remains at the original school site.

Among the teachers of Cherry Valley School was Madeline Darling (1940s).
