Historic Sites of Manitoba: Mylor School No. 852 (Municipality of Cartwright-Roblin)

The Mylor School District was established formally in July 1895 and a frame school building was erected on the southwest quarter of 15-1-14 west of the Principal Meridian, in what is now the Municipality of Cartwright-Roblin. It closed in 1963 and its remaining students went to Cartwright School No. 174. The school building was later demolished but a metal sign commemorates it at the original site.
