Historic Sites of Manitoba: Strassberg School No. 757 (RM of Rhineland)
The Strassberg School District was established in May 1893 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE11-1-1E in the Rural Municipality of Rhineland. The district was dissolved in 1968 and students from this area went to Gretna Consolidated School. Its area became part of the Rhineland School Division. The former schoolhouse was sold and moved away, leaving nothing at the site.
Among the teachers of Strassberg School were Gustav Toews (1897) and Jack Isaak (?).
