Historic Sites of Manitoba: Wolflea School No. 590 (Municipality of Souris-Glenwood)

A monument, dedicated in 1996, marks the former site of Wolflea School, that operated in what is now the Municipality of Souris-Glenwood from 1889 to 1944, when the school closed and remaining students went to Souris Consolidated School No. 2388. The original school site was one-half mile south of here. The district was formally dissolved in 1959 and its catchment area became part of the Souris Consolidated School District and later the Souris Valley School Division.
