Historic Sites of Manitoba: Zora School No. 1518 (RM of Springfield)

The Zora School District was established in February 1910 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at S13-12-5E in the Rural Municipality of Springfield. In 1965, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Oakbank Consolidated School District No. 2426 and later the Transcona Springfield School Division. The former schoolhouse was later converted into a private residence.
