Historic Sites of Manitoba: Montcalm School No. 984 (Municipality of Lorne)

The Montcalm School District was established formally in January 1898 and a one-room, wood frame schoolhouse operated in the southeast quarter of 28-6-8 west of the Principal Meridian, in what is now the Municipality of Lorne. The district was dissolved in 1960 and henceforth the students in the area went to the Notre Dame du Lourdes Consolidated School No. 2390. The school building is no longer present at the site but a metal sign commemorates it.
