Historic Sites of Manitoba: Audy School No. 2183 (RM of Park)

The Audy School District was organized formally in August 1928. A school building operated at this site, SE5-20-20W in the Rural Municipality of Park, until it closed in June 1967. The district was dissolved and its area became part of the Rolling River School Division. The former school building was renovated into a private residence and a stone monument nearby commemorates it.
