Historic Sites of Manitoba: Kinlough School No. 784 (RM of Macdonald)

This site at NE21-9-2W in the Rural Municipality of Macdonald was the location of Kinlough School. Established formally in September 1893, the district was dissolved in 1909 and the students went to Starbuck Consolidated School No. 1150. In 1930, the former school building was used for a time as a residence by the Ammeter and Trachsel families.
