Historic Sites of Manitoba: Corona School No. 1706 (RM of Springfield)

The Corona School District was established in November 1913 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NW12-12-4E in the Rural Municipality of Springfield. In 1965, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Oakbank Consolidated School District No. 2426 and later the Transcona Springfield School Division. The former school building was purchased by world-renowned sculptor Leo Mol who used it through the 1970s and 1980s as his studio. In 1995, it was moved to the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden in Assiniboine Park, where it was restored and opened to the public.
