Historic Sites of Manitoba: Prosser School No. 2040 (RM of North Cypress)

Prosser School District was formally established in April 1920, and a building was erected here, in the southeast quarter of 16-10-14 west of the Principal Meridian in the Rural Municipality of North Cypress, southeast of the Town of Carberry, during the summer and fall of 1920. In January 1962, it was consolidated into Carberry School No. 2404 and the wood frame building was converted into a granary. As of 2011, it remains standing at the site.

Among the teachers of Prosser School was Miss Jean Cowan (1920).
