Historic Sites of Manitoba: Langvale School No. 224 (RM of Prairie Lakes)

The Langvale School District was established in January 1883. A one-room schoolhouse operated at SE2-6-18W in the Rural Municipality of Prairie Lakes. The school closed in 1961 and the district was dissolved the following year. Students from this area went to Margaret Consolidated School. Later, the area became part of the Turtle Mountain School Division. A monument marks the former site of the school, which is no longer present there.

Among the teachers who worked at Langvale School was Vivian D. Glass (1940-1941).
