Historic Sites of Manitoba: Creeford School No. 180 (Municipality of North Cypress-Langford)

The Creeford School District was established in September 1883 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE20-12-16W in what is now the Municipality of North Cypress-Langford. Some of the teachers who worked at the school were Harriet Thompson (circa 1885) and James Dodds. It closed in the early 1890s and the building was moved to the village of Brookdale where it was used as a private residence until around 1979.
