Historic Sites of Manitoba: Dollard School No. 1686 (Lewis, RM of Whitemouth)

The Dollard School District was established in July 1913 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NW29-10-11E in the Lewis area of the Rural Municipality of Whitemouth. After the school closed, the building was moved to Medika. Only its concrete foundation remains at the site.

Among the teachers who worked at Dollard School through the years were Margaret Elder (1925), Lillie Brynelan (1930), Joseph A. Loucks (1935), Agnes Adamek (1940), Agnes Zadorozny (1945, 1960), Anthony Kozachenko (1950), and Edward Krysko (1955).
