Historic Sites of Manitoba: Kronsthal School No. 2133 (RM of Rhineland)

The Kronsthal School District was established in July 1925 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at the southeast corner of SE19-1-2W in the Rural Municipality of Rhineland. In 1958, the district was consolidated with the Exeter School District No. 1994 and Aesop School No. 2132 to form the Kronsthal Consolidated School District No. 1994, with a school building in the village of Kronsthal about a mile to the southwest. The original Kronsthal School building was used for a time as a private residence but no vestige of it remains at the site today.

Among the teachers who worked at Kronsthal School through the years was Tina Buhr (wife of John Warkentin).
