Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Isidore School No. 2249 (RM of DeSalaberry)

The St. Isidore School District was established in September 1898 and a one-room schoolhouse operated on Lot 72A in the Parish of St. Boniface, in the Rural Municipality of DeSalaberry. After the school closed, the building was moved to the site of Frontenac School where it was later used as part of an agricultural seed-cleaning plant. It was eventually demolished.
