Historic Sites of Manitoba: Eton School No. 356 (Municipality of Louise)

The Eton School District was established in November 1884 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NE35-1-11W in what is now the Municipality of Louise. The district was dissolved in 1964 and its catchment area became part of the Crystal City Consolidated School District and later the Pembina Valley School Division. The former school building was used for a time as a granary but was not present at the site in 2013.
