Historic Sites of Manitoba: Don School No. 1813 (RM of Mossey River)

The Don School District was organized formally in November 1915 and a school building was erected at this site in the Rural Municipality of Mossey River. In 1967, it joined the Duck Mountain School Division. The building remained at the site for some time but, as of 2012, has been demolished with only the concrete foundation remaining. The teacherage was still standing.
