Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hill Head School No. 860 (RM of Rosedale)

The Hill Head School District was established formally in June 1895, named for the Scottish home of a local resident, and a one-room schoolhouse operated at this site in the Rural Municipality of Rosedale. It closed in August 1916 and its students went to Eden Consolidated School No. 1661. The former school building is no longer present at the site.

Among the teachers of Hill Head School was Miss Blanche Scott (1895-1903).
