Historic Sites of Manitoba: Odda School No. 1830 (RM of Mossey River)

The Odda School District was established in May 1916 and a wood frame schoolhouse operated at NW10-33-18W in the Rural Municipality of Mossey River. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its catchment area became part of the Winnipegosis School District and later the Duck Mountain School Division.

Among the teachers who worked at Whitemouth Lake School was Leonard Domaschuk (1951-1952).
