Historic Sites of Manitoba: Pembina Crossing School No. 324 (Municipality of Pembina)

The Pembina Crossing School District was established in July 1884 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE30-2-8W in what is now the Municipality of Pembina. In 1964, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Manitou Consolidated School District and later the Pembina Valley School Division. The former school building was demolished in the mid-1990s.
