Historic Sites of Manitoba: Huron School No. 215 (Municipality of Louise)

Huron School was established in 1884 and a school building was erected on the northwest quarter of 23-2-11 west of the Principal Meridian in what is now the Municipality of Louise. It closed in 1967 when it was consolidated with Crystal City Consolidated School No. 107. The school building is no longer present at the site but a stone monument commemorates it.
