Historic Sites of Manitoba: Burritt School / Hollybourne School No. 2190 (RM of Grandview)

Known originally as the Burritt School District when it was established in October 1928, it was renamed Hollybourne by 1944. A school building operated on the southeast quarter of 32-23-25 west of the Principal Meridian in the Rural Municipality of Grandview. It closed in 1965 when it was consolidated into Halton Consolidated School No. 2432. Only the foundation of the former school building, and a few bricks from its chimney, remains at the site.

Among the teachers of Hollybourne School was Mosie Nicholas “Moe” Tobin (late 1950s).
