Historic Sites of Manitoba: Fillion School No. 2041 (Municipality of Emerson-Franklin)

The Fillion School District was established in May 1920 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NW35-3-2E in what is now the Municipality of Emerson-Franklin. The district was dissolved in 1958 and its area became part of the St. Jean Baptiste Consolidated School District. The former school building was later moved to SW22-3-2E where it was used for storage.
