Historic Sites of Manitoba: Birdview School / Darveau School No. 1869 (RM of Mountain)

Known originally as the Birdview School District when it was organized in March 1917, it was renamed Darveau at some point. A one-room schoolhouse operated at NW11-35-20W in the Rural Municipality of Mountain. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Duck Mountain School Division.
