Historic Sites of Manitoba: Deerhorn School No. 1338 (Municipality of West Interlake)
The Deerhorn School District was established formally in June 1905 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NE3-21-5W in what is now the Municipality of West Interlake. Around 1942, the original schoolhouse was replaced by a new building. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Lakeshore School Division. The former school building is no longer present at the site and a new building has replaced it.
