Historic Sites of Manitoba: Mayville School No. 375 (RM of Pipestone)

The Mayville School District was established formally in March 1885 and a school building was erected on the southeast corner of 1-9-26 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Pipestone. The district was dissolved in 1965 and remaining students went to Woodnorth Consolidated School No. 1533 or Virden Consolidated School No. 144. The building is no longer present at the site, but a monument erected in 1970 by the Mayville Agricultural Society commemorates it, along with pioneers and citizens of the Mayville area.
