Historic Sites of Manitoba: Fenwick School / Reynolds School No. 1918 (RM of Fisher)

The Reynolds School District was known originally as Fenwick School District when it was organized formally in March 1918. A one-room schoolhouse operated on the southwest quarter of 7-22-3W in the Rural Municipality of Fisher until 1942, although the district was not dissolved until April 1967. The building was standing vacant when it was destroyed by fire around 1985. The concrete foundation for the former schoolhouse remains at the site, along with a commemorative sign.

Among the teachers of Reynolds School were William Meredith Ireton (1919) and Dotte Hall (1926).
