Historic Sites of Manitoba: Langevin School No. 946 (RM of Montcalm)

The Langevin School District was established in May 1898, probably named for cleric Louis Philippe Adelard Langevin, and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE19-2-1E in the Rural Municipality of Montcalm. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its catchment area was added to the Altona Consolidated School District and later the Rhineland School Division.
