Historic Sites of Manitoba: Menteith Union School No. 313 (RM of Sifton)

The Menteith School District was established formally in November 1883 but a school did not operate here, on the northeast corner of 8-7-22 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Sifton, until 1890. It was a union school by virtue of its catchment area including land in adjoining Rural Municipality of Glenwood. It closed in October 1919 as local children began attending the Deleau Consolidated School.
