Historic Sites of Manitoba: Morris School No. 29 (157 Lucinda 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 two-storey school building was designed by Winnipeg architect W. W. Blair and constructed using bricks made by the Morris Brick Manufacturing Company. After the 1950 Red River flood, the school was renovated into a fourplex residential building.
Among the other teachers of Morris School was William Nelson Harvey.
