Historic Sites of Manitoba: Little Saskatchewan School No. 134 (RM of Oakview)

The Little Saskatchewan School District was organized formally in January 1882 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE20-13-20W in what is now the Rural Municipality of Oakview. The district was dissolved in 1963 and its catchment area was divided between the Rapid City Consolidated School District and the Rivers Consolidated School District, and later the Rolling River School Division. A stone monument commemorates the school at its former site.
