Historic Sites of Manitoba: Timber School No. 1654 (Municipality of Roblin)

The Timber School District was established in February 1913 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NW28-28-27W in what is now the Municipality of Roblin. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Intermountain School Division. A sign remains to mark the school’s location.
