Historic Sites of Manitoba: Park View School No. 1391 (Municipality of West Interlake)
The Park View School District was established in August 1906 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NE16-21-6W in what is now the Municipality of West Interlake. The school closed in 1965 and, two years later, the district was dissolved. Its area became part of the Lakeshore School Division. No vestige of the former school building remains at the site.
