Historic Sites of Manitoba: Germania School / Herriot School No. 1012 (Municipality of Glenella-Lansdowne)

Known originally as Germania School District when it was established in May 1899, at some point it was renamed Herriot School District, probably in commemoration of school inspector A. A. Herriot. A one-room schoolhouse operated at SW34-18-12W in what is now the Municipality of Glenella-Lansdowne. In 1936, it became part of the Glenella Municipal School District. The school closed in 1965.
