Historic Sites of Manitoba: Calder School / Reinfeld School No. 2075 (Reinfeld, RM of Stanley)

Known as the Calder School District when it was established in August 1921, it was renamed Reinfeld School in March 1957. A one-room schoolhouse operated in the village of Reinfeld (NW36-2-4W) in the Rural Municipality of Stanley. After the district was dissolved, its area became part of the Stanley School Division. The former school building was converted into a community centre.
