Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Gustave School No. 977 (Municipality of Lorne)

The St. Gustave School District was established in May 1898 and, between 1897 and 1904, a one-room schoolhouse operated in the southeast corner of SE22-6-11W in what is now the Municipality of Lorne and, from 1904 to 1959, in the southwest corner of SW14-6-11W. In 1959, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Ste. Marie Consolidated School District and later the Mountain School Division.
