Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hesselwood School No. 913 (RM of Sifton)

The Hesselwood School District was established in June 1897 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE18-8-23W in the Rural Municipality of Sifton. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its area became part of the Oak Lake Consolidated School District and later the Fort La Bosse School Division.
