Historic Sites of Manitoba: Poplar Bay School No. 2175 (RM of Alexander)

The Poplar Bay School District was organized formally in December 1927 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at the southwest corner of NW17-16-13E in the Rural Municipality of Alexander. Closed around 1957, the district was dissolved in 1967 and its catchment area became part of the Lac du Bonnet Consolidated School District and later the Agassiz School Division.
