Historic Sites of Manitoba: Island School No. 2105 (Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton)

The Island School District was established in June 1923 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE32-22-3E in what is now the Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton. In 1966, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Arborg Consolidated School District and later the Evergreen School Division. A commemorative sign remains at the former school site.
