Historic Sites of Manitoba: Denepro School No. 2232 (Municipality of Grandview)

The Denepro School District was organized formally in May 1931 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SW20-24-25W in the Rural Municipality of Grandview. In 1965, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Halton Consolidated School District and later the Intermountain School Division. In 2019, a commemorative sign at the former school site was erected by Denepro alumnus Delmar Kukurudz.
