Historic Sites of Manitoba: Kjarna School No. 647 (RM of Gimli)

The Kjarna School District was organized formally in April 1897 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NW16-18-4E in the Rural Municipality of Gimli. It was dissolved in 1967 and its catchment area became part of the Evergreen School Division.

Among the teachers of Kjarna School were John Kjernested (1897) and G. B. Arilius Isfeld (1939).
