Historic Sites of Manitoba: New Scotland School No. 1720 (RM of Grahamdale)

The New Scotland School District was established formally in January 1914 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE22-27-9W in what would later become the Rural Municipality of Grahamdale. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Lakeshore School Division. The former school building is no longer present at the site and a new building has replaced it.
