Historic Sites of Manitoba: Kronsweide School No. 1030 (RM of Morris)

The Kronsweide School District was formally established in August 1899 and a school building operated in the northeast corner of the southeast quarter of 23-4-2 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Morris. The district, which became part of the Morris Macdonald School Division, was dissolved in 1968 and henceforth students from this area went to Lowe Farm Consolidated School No. 2377. In September 2015, a sign commemorating the school was erected at the site.
