Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hodgsonville School No. 1835 (RM of Fisher)

The Hodgsonville School District was organized formally in July 1916 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NE21-25-2W in what later became the Rural Municipality of Fisher. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its area became part of the Lakeshore School Division. The enamel sign from the former school was on display at the time of a 2015 site visit.
