Historic Sites of Manitoba: Stodgell School No. 289 (RM of Woodlands)

The Stodgell School District was established formally in December 1882 and a school building operated on the southwest quarter of 10-15-2 west of the Principal Meridian in the Rural Municipality of Woodlands. The school closed in 1966. The former school building, dating from 1920, was renovated into a private residence.

Among the teachers of Stodgell School was P. Gardiner (1897).
