Historic Sites of Manitoba: Mossvale School No. 2267 (Municipality of Grandview)

The Mossvale School District was organized formally in December 1935 and a school building was erected in the southeast quarter of 29-25-25 west of the Principal Meridian, in what is now the Municipality of Grandview. The district was dissolved in 1967 and the remaining students went to Grandview Consolidated School No. 2447. The former school building was renovated as a private residence and is now situated at N51.22895, W100.44027. Only its shelterbelt of trees remains at the original site.
