Historic Sites of Manitoba: Kipling School No. 1931 (RM of Reynolds)

The Kipling School District was established in June 1918 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NW33-8-12E in what later became the Rural Municipality of Reynolds. It was later part of the Birch River Municipal School District. After the school closed, the building was renovated into a private residence.
