Historic Sites of Manitoba: Homer School No. 2078 (Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton)

The Homer School District was organized formally in July 1921 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE7-25-3E in the Rural Municipality of Bifrost. In 1966, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Arborg Consolidated School District and later the Evergreen School Division. The schoolhouse was still present at the time of a 2020 site visit.

Among the teachers of Homer School was J. G. Ladoski.
