Historic Sites of Manitoba: Shevlin School No. 1857 (Shevlin, Municipality of Roblin)

The Shevlin School District was established in February 1917 and a one-room schoolhouse operated near Shevlin (SW29-25-27W) in what is now the Municipality of Roblin. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its area became part of the Intermountain School Division. No vestige of the school remains at the site.

Among the teachers of Shevlin School was Pauline Johnson (1960-1961).
