Historic Sites of Manitoba: Crestview School No. 2068 (Municipality of Swan Valley West)

The Crestview School District was organized formally in February 1921 and a school building operated at SE29-36-29W in what is now the Municipality of Swan Valley West. It closed in June 1967 when it became part of the Swan Valley School Division. The former school building is no longer present at the site but a stone monument erected in 1991 commemorates it.

Among the teachers of Crestview School was Patricia Dzikowski (1967).
