Historic Sites of Manitoba: Larkspur School No. 1850 (RM of Alonsa)

The map location shown for this Historic Site of Manitoba is APPROXIMATE.
If you know its exact location, please contact us at webmaster@mhs.mb.ca.

The Larkspur School District was organized formally in December 1916, and a one-room schoolhouse operated near the southwest corner of NW12-25-12W in what was later the Rural Municipality of Alonsa. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Turtle River School Division.

Among the teachers of Larkspur School was W. Harold Copeland (1932-1933).
