Historic Sites of Manitoba: Haland School No. 1227 (RM of Coldwell)

The Haland School District was established in February 1903 and a one-room schoolhouse operated on the line between SE12-18-3W and NE12-18-3W in the Rural Municipality of Coldwell. In 1953, a new school and teacherage were built at NE13-18-3W. It closed permanently in 1966 and the district was dissolved in 1967. Its area became part of the Lakeshore School Division. The former school building was moved to NE27-17-3W where it was renovated into a private residence.
