Historic Sites of Manitoba: Stratherne School No. 349 (RM of Oakland)

Stratherne School was founded in November 1884 on the southwest quarter of 22-8-17 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Oakland. In 1890, the building was moved to SE28-8-17 where it served until 1950 when a new school was built here, SW27-8-17. It closed in 1962 and the remaining students went to Wawanesa Consolidated School No. 2393. A cairn was erected at the site in 1970.
