Historic Sites of Manitoba: Cromarty School No. 1214 (Municipality of Roblin)

The Cromarty School District was organized formally in January 1903. The school operated in what is now the Municipality of Roblin until 1911 when it closed. The remaining students went to Goose Lake Consolidated School No. 1283. The former school building was converted into a community hall, which it remains today. In 1999, it became a municipally-designated historic site.
