Historic Sites of Manitoba: Kinlo School No. 1680 (RM of Macdonald)

This site at NE7-8-2E in the Rural Municipality of Macdonald was the location of Kinlo School. Established formally in May 1913, the school closed in 1938 and henceforth the students went to Domain Consolidated School No. 2342. The school district was dissolved in 1953. The school building is no longer present at the site but a metal sign commemorates it.
