Historic Sites of Manitoba: New Home School No. 1647 (RM of Grahamdale)

The New Home School District was established formally in January 1913. It operated a school building on the northwest quarter of 18-26-7 west of the Principal Meridian in what is now the Rural Municipality of Grahamdale. The school closed in the summer of 1969. The building is no longer present at the site.

Among the teachers of New Home School was Mary Katherine Hertzog (1968-1969).
