Historic Sites of Manitoba: Lockerby School No. 570 (RM of Riding Mountain West)

The Lockerby School District was organized formally in April 1889 and a school building was subsequently erected on the northeast quarter of 8-22-27 west of the Principal Meridian in what is now the Rural Municipality of Riding Mountain West. It closed in 1966 and the remaining students went to Inglis Consolidated School No. 2458. The building is no longer at the site but a monument commemorates it.
