Historic Sites of Manitoba: Rosenhoff South School No. 61 (RM of Morris)

A fenced and grassed site in the Rural Municipality of Morris is the former school grounds of the Rosenhoff South School. It closed in 1965 and the building was moved to the site of the Rosenhoff North School for use as a third classroom. A few concrete foundations remain visible here.
