Historic Sites of Manitoba: Chesterfield School No. 408 (RM of Two Borders)

The Chesterfield School District was established in June 1885 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NW10-3-26W in what is now the Rural Municipality of Two Borders. In 1964, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Melita Consolidated School District and later the Antler River School Division. Records for the school are held at the Antler River Museum in Melita.
