Historic Sites of Manitoba: Springstein School No. 2143 (Springstein, RM of Cartier)
The Springstein School District was organized formally in February 1926 and a school building was erected in Springstein, in the Rural Municipality of Cartier. In April 1969, it joined the Morris-Macdonald School Division No. 19 and continued to operate until June 1981 when it closed permanently. A commemorative monument at the former school site was erected in August 1996.
