Historic Sites of Manitoba: Rosehill School No. 90 (Municipality of Cartwright-Roblin)

The Rosehill School District was established formally in June 1883. A one-classroom schoolhouse was erected at NE16-4-14W in what is now the Municipality of Cartwright-Roblin. It closed in 1960 and remaining students went to Baldur Consolidated School No. 667. The school building is no longer on the site but a metal sign commemorates it.

Among the teachers who worked at Rosehill School was Albert Buttress (1888).
