Historic Sites of Manitoba: Shorncliffe School No. 1851 (Shorncliffe, Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton)

The Shorncliffe School District was organized formally in January 1917, and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SW21-24-3E in what is now the Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Evergreen School Division.
