Historic Sites of Manitoba: Welch School / Welsh School No. 1002 (RM of Argyle)

Known originally as Welch School when it was established in 1899, it was renamed Welsh School at some point during its history. A school building was erected on the northeast quarter of 33-4-14 west of the Principal Meridian in the Rural Municipality of Argyle. It closed in 1966 and remaining students went to Baldur Consolidated School No. 667. The district was dissolved in 1968. The school building is no longer on the site but a metal sign commemorates it.
