Historic Sites of Manitoba: Crandall Pioneers Monument / Crandall School No. 460 (Crandall, Municipality of Prairie View)
A monument in Crandall in the Municipality of Prairie View, dedicated on 1 August 1982, is situated on the former site of Crandall Consolidated School No. 460. The bell from the school is incorporated into the monument. Known originally as Crandall School No. 1196 when it was established here in August 1902, it was renamed in May 1918 when it was consolidated with three nearby rural schools: Chumah School No. 401, Carlingville School No. 460, and Hazelbank School No. 1906.
