Historic Sites of Manitoba: Leroy School No. 1714 (RM of Fisher)

The Leroy School District was formed in December 1913 and a one-classroom, wood-frame school building operated at NW24-25-3W, near the community of Fisherton in what would later be the Rural Municipality of Fisher. In 1967, the school closed as its catchment area was absorbed into the Lakeshore School Division. As of 2003, the building was still standing at the original site, along with a commemorative sign. It was gone at the time of a 2015 site visit.

Among the teachers who worked at Leroy School was Mildred Edith Richarda Dowd (1936-1938).
