Historic Sites of Manitoba: South Beresford School No. 172 (RM of Glenwood)

A fieldstone cairn, erected in 1980, marks the former site of South Beresford School, that operated in the Rural Municipality of Glenwood from May 1884 to January 1967. Known originally as Beresford School, it was renamed South Beresford in February 1953. When the school district was dissolved, remaining students went to Souris Consolidated School No. 2388. The one-room, wood frame school building was moved to another site (N49.67017 W100.18758) where it was used as a granary.
