Historic Sites of Manitoba: Riverbend School No. 1176 (RM of Dauphin)

The Riverbend School District was established in February 1902 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NW22-26-19W in the Rural Municipality of Dauphin. In 1965, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Dauphin Town School District No. 905 and later the Dauphin Ochre School Division.

Among the teachers of Riverbend School were Mary Urbanovitch (1930s) and John Urichen (1954-1958).
