Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hebron School No. 316 (Municipality of Souris-Glenwood)

The Hebron School District was established formally in 1884 and a school building was erected in the southwest quarter of 23-8-20W in what is now the Municipality of Souris-Glenwood. The school closed in June 1968 and its remaining students went to Souris. The building was still standing, but vacant, in the late 1980s, and was later moved away. In 1991, a monument was erected at the site.
