Historic Sites of Manitoba: Nordheim School No. 2263 (RM of Mossey River)

The Nordheim School District was established in June 1935 and a wood frame school building was constructed at SW29-30-18W in the Rural Municipality of Mossey River. The school closed around 1967 and the building was used for a time as a granary. In dilapidated condition, it was demolished by its owner in June 2013. All that remains at the site is its concrete floor.
