Historic Sites of Manitoba: Pinkerton School No. 1074 (Municipality of Norfolk Treherne)

The Pinkerton School District was established in May 1900 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE18-7-9W in what is now the Municipality of Norfolk Treherne. The district was dissolved in 1965 and its area was divided between Treherne Consolidated School and Notre Dame de Lourdes School. The area later became part of the Mountain School Division. A monument stands at the former school site.

Records for Pinkerton School are held at the St. Claude and Area Archives.
