Historic Sites of Manitoba: Rollins School No. 645 (Municipality of Louise)

The Rollins School District was organized formally in March 1891 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at the southeast corner of SE1-2-12W in what is now the Municipality of Louise. The district was dissolved in 1958 and its catchment area became part of the Crystal City Consolidated School District. A metal sign commemorates the school at its former site.
