Historic Sites of Manitoba: Sinclair River School No. 1895 (Municipality of Minitonas-Bowsman)

The Sinclair River School District was organized formally in June 1917. From 1919 to 1953, it operated a one-room wood frame school building on the southwest quarter of 21-37-25 west of the Principal Meridian in what is now the Municipality of Minitonas-Bowsman. In 1953, the building was moved to a site one mile north and a half mile east of this location, on the southeast corner of 28-27-25W. A monument at this site, erected in 1996, commemorates it.

Among the teachers of Sinclair River School was J. L. Morrow.
