Historic Sites of Manitoba: Lintrathen School No. 1118 (RM of Dufferin)

The Lintrathen School District was established in March 1901 and a one-room wood frame school building was constructed on the southwest quarter of 3-6-6W in the Rural Municipality of Dufferin, on one acre of land donated by Ben Megill. The school closed in 1919 and the districted was consolidated with Graysville School. No vestige of it remains at the site but a commemorative sign was erected by the Carman/Dufferin Municipal Heritage Advisory Committee.
