Historic Sites of Manitoba: Lydiatt School No. 1199 (Lydiatt, RM of Brokenhead)

Known originally as the Reichenbach School District when it was organized formally in January 1902, it was renamed Lydiatt sometime before 1926. A one-room schoolhouse operated at the southwest corner of SW9-12-8E in the Rural Municipality of Brokenhead. The district was dissolved in 1968 and its catchment area became part of the Agassiz School Division. The former school was later renovated into a private residence.

Among the teachers of Lydiatt School was Gerhard Lohrenz (1931-1938).
