Historic Sites of Manitoba: Sinclairville School No. 2063 (RM of Lansdowne)

In 1921, there were enough school children in this area to warrant the establishment of a school district. The district was named after a local farmer and the school was built in the northeast quarter of 32-13-13 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Lansdowne. In 1966, after 45 years in operation, the school was closed and the building was demolished. Thereafter, area students attended classes in Arden, Edrans, or Gladstone. This cairn was dedicated at a ceremony on 31 July 2005 to the families, teachers, trustees, and students of this district.
