Historic Sites of Manitoba: Maffam School No. 727 (RM of Sifton)

The Maffam School District was established formally in February 1892 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at this site in the Rural Municipality of Sifton until October 1919. At that time, its catchment area became part of the Deleau Consolidated School District. A metal commemorative sign remains at the site.
