Historic Sites of Manitoba: Tarno School No. 1741 (Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton)

The Tarno School District was organized formally in March 1914 and a schoolhouse operated at SE29-23-3E in what is now the Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton. The district was dissolved in 1966 and its catchment area became part of the Riverton Consolidated School District and later the Evergreen School Division.

Among the teachers of Tarno School was Peter M. Onysko.
