Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Peter’s School No. 1031 (RM of Morris)

The St. Peter’s School District was formally established in July 1899 and a school building operated in the southwest quarter of 23-4-1 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Morris. The district was dissolved in 1959 and henceforth students from this area went to Lowe Farm Consolidated School No. 2377. In September 2015, a sign commemorating the school was erected at the site.
