Historic Sites of Manitoba: Eden School No. 510 (Municipality of Hamiota)

The Eden School District was formally established in June 1887. It operated a school at this location until August 1918 when it consolidated with Scotia School No. 290 to form Oakner Consolidated School No. 290, in the nearby village of Oakner in the Municipality of Hamiota. This concrete cairn, erected in 1978 by the Eden School Historical Group, marks the site of the former school.
