Historic Sites of Manitoba: Millwood School No. 507 (Millwood, RM of Russell)

The Millwood School District was organized formally in April 1887 and a school building was erected in the village of Millwood in the Rural Municipality of Russell. The school closed in 1968. The building was used for a time as a community centre but now appears vacant. A nearby monument commemorates pioneers of the community.
