Historic Sites of Manitoba: Blaris School No. 358 (Municipality of Prairie View)

A metal sign marks the former site of Blaris School in the Municipality of Prairie View. Established formally in January 1885, a school building was erected on the southeast quarter of 25-14-26 west of the Principal Meridian. It became part of the Miniota Municipal School District in 1919 and closed in 1949. The school building is no longer present at the site.

Among the teachers of Blaris School was Catherine Slater (1940s).
