Historic Sites of Manitoba: Midland School No. 845 (RM of Pembina)

Midland School was established in April 1895 and a building was erected on the northwest quarter of 21-4-8 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Pembina. The building was used until 1951 when it was replaced by a new structure. It closed in 1963 and the remaining students went to Manitou Consolidated School No. 314 or St. Leon Village Consolidated School No. 1425. The school building was sold and moved away.

Notable students of Midland School included D. Bruce Moorhead.
