Historic Sites of Manitoba: Grifton School No. 1619 (Grifton, RM of Grandview)

The Grifton School District was established in March 1912 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE29-27-23W in the Rural Municipality of Grandview. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Grandview Consolidated School District and later the Intermountain School Division. No vestige of the former school building remains at the site.
