Historic Sites of Manitoba: Endcliffe School No. 1500 (RM of Riding Mountain West)

The Endcliffe School District was organized formally in April 1909, named for the home of local settler Bill Pagan in Yorkshire, England. A school building operated on the southwest quarter of 1-22-29 west of the Principal Meridian in what is now the Rural Municipality of Riding Mountain West. The original building was replaced before the school closed permanently in 1968. The building stands vacant at the site along with a commemorative monument beside it.

Among the teachers of Endcliffe School was Margaret Annie Witty (1950-?).
