Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Lawrence School No. 646 (Municipality of Louise)

The St. Lawrence School District was established formally in March 1891 and a school building was erected on the southeast quarter of 16-1-12 west of the Principal Meridian in what is now the Municipality of Louise. It closed in 1962 and parts of its district were later consolidated with Crystal City Consolidated School No. 107 and Clearwater Consolidated School No. 2324. Its catchment area later became part of the Pembina Valley School Division. The school building is no longer present at the site but a metal sign commemorates it.

Among the teachers of St. Lawrence School was T. G. McKitrick.
