Historic Sites of Manitoba: Westmount School No. 1587 (RM of Clanwilliam)

The Westmount School District was organized formally in May 1911 and it operated a school building on the northeast quarter of 8-17-18W in the Rural Municipality of Clanwilliam. The school closed in 1965. The building is no longer present at the site but a monument commemorates it.

Among the teachers of Westmount School was Marjorie Ann Dewar
