Historic Sites of Manitoba: Progress School No. 2115 (Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton)

The Progress School District was organized formally in October 1924 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NE2-24-3E in the Rural Municipality of Bifrost. In 1966, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Riverton Consolidated School District and later the Evergreen School Division.
