Historic Sites of Manitoba: Darlington School No. 79 (Municipality of Pembina)

A commemorative marker east of the village of Darlingford, in what is now the Municipality of Pembina, denotes the former site of the Darlington School, which operated here from 1886 to 1910. Formally established in May 1879, the school district took its name from Darlington, Ontario from which settlers in the area had come. The district was dissolved in June 1910 when it was consolidated with Darlingford Consolidated School No. 1228.
