Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hall School No. 2295 (Municipality of Minitonas-Bowsman)

The Hall School District, named for local resident Dick Hall, was organized formally in February 1939. It operated a one-room schoolhouse at SW17-38-25W in the Rural Municipality of Minitonas. The school closed in June 1967. The building was moved to SW11-38-25W but a plaque erected in 1987 commemorates it at the original site.

Among the teachers of Hall School were Sylvia M. Reid (1939-1941), Phyllis Taylor (1965), and Kathy Giles (1966-1967).
