Historic Sites of Manitoba: Gauthier School No. 1758 (RM of Tache)

The Gauthier School District was organized formally in May 1914 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE21-9-8E in the Rural Municipality of Tache, on land donated by David Gauthier, for whom the district was named. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its catchment area became part of the Seine River School Division.

A monument at the former school site commemorates the 25th anniversary of the Ross Community Centre in 1993 and Gauthier School.
