Historic Sites of Manitoba: Sourisford School No. 906 (RM of Arthur)

Established in April 1897, in the Rural Municipality of Arthur, the district was dissolved in 1961, and henceforth students from this area went to Melita Consolidated School No. 440 or Edward Municipal School No. 2353. As of 2012, the building still stands on its original site.
