Historic Sites of Manitoba: Rosenheim School No. 1306 (Municipality of Rhineland)

The Rosenheim School District was established in August 1904 and a one-room schoolhouse was built at NW14-3-2W in what is now the Municipality of Rhineland. In 1966, the district was dissolved. Its area became part of the Horndean School District which, on 18 August 1971, joined the Rhineland School Division. The former teacherage was demolished and the school building was moved to Plum Coulee where it was converted into a private residence.
