Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Etienne School No. 1585 (Marchand, RM of La Broquerie)

The St. Etienne School District was organized formally in September 1911 and a one-room school building operated in Marchand in the Rural Municipality of La Broquerie. A second classroom was added in 1935 and, in 1962, a further expansion added a furnace room and indoor toilets. Since the school closed in June 1967, the building has been used as a community centre.
