Historic Sites of Manitoba: Mimosa School No. 532 (Municipality of Brenda-Waskada)

The Mimosa School District was established formally in March 1888. A school was erected on the northeast quarter of 22-2-25 west of the Principal Meridian, in what is now the Municipality of Brenda-Waskada. The school closed in 1949 and its remaining students went to Waskada Consolidated School No. 492 or Medora Consolidated School No. 493. The district was dissolved in 1959. A commemorative cairn for a school was erected July 1982, topped with a replica, but the school building is not present at the site.
