Historic Sites of Manitoba: Dublin School No. 1095 (Municipality of Two Borders)

The Dublin School District was established formally in January 1901, and a one-room frame schoolhouse was erected at SW22-6-28W in what is now the Municipality of Two Borders. The school closed in 1964 and its remaining students went to Reston Consolidated School No. 141. The former school building was sold and removed from the site but a monument dedicated on 27 July 1985 commemorates it.
