Historic Sites of Manitoba: Morris Consolidated School (Rebecca Street, Morris)
The Morris School District was formally established in March 1876 and a school building operated in the Town of Morris. In 1908, a new school building was designed by Winnipeg architect W. W. Blair. After the 1950 Red River flood, the school was renovated into a fourplex residential building.
Among the teachers of Morris Consolidated School were Doris Penstock (1952-1954).
