Historic Sites of Manitoba: Angus School No. 1487 (Angusville, RM of Riding Mountain West)
The Angus School District was organized formally in February 1909 and a school building was erected at Angusville in what is now the Rural Municipality of Riding Mountain West. The original building was enlarged and later replaced by the present structure. In 1968, it became part of the Pelly Trail School Division. Closed as of 1979, the building appears vacant.
Among the teachers of Angus School were Albin Lucki (late 1930s), Minnie Karasiewich (1936-1942), and Peter Melnyk (1950s).
