Historic Sites of Manitoba: Gamblers School No. 1244 (RM of Ellice-Archie)

The Gamblers School District was organized formally in May 1903 but a one-room school building was erected at this location in what is now the Rural Municipality of Ellice-Archie until 1913. It closed in 1960 and the remaining students went to Foxwarren Consolidated School No. 525 or Binscarth Consolidated School No. 2326. The building is no longer at the site but a monument commemorates it.
