Historic Sites of Manitoba: Riverside School No. 276 (RM of Whitewater)
The Riverside School District was organized formally in June 1883 and a school building was erected around 1885 on the northwest quarter of 9-6-19 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Whitewater. It was dissolved in 1962 and remaining students went to Minto Consolidated School No. 1174. The original building, still at the former school site and including an oil-fueled furnace in an attached room, is now a municipally designated historic site. Its floor has suffered considerable structural damage and the building is open to the elements.
Among the teachers who worked at Riverside School were James E. Scarrow (1931-1934) and Phyllis Leadbeater Clark.
