Historic Sites of Manitoba: Emberly School No. 1979 (RM of Dufferin)

This plaque marks the site of the former Emberly School, named in honour of James Emberly who donated the land for this purpose. This wooden one-classroom structure was built in 1919 on NE 22-7-7 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Dufferin. The school premises were used for Christmas concerts and the annual field day. When schools consolidated in 1960, the school closed in 1961 and was sold to a farmer to be transformed into a home. This cairn, unveiled on 25 September 1999, was dedicated to the students, parents, and teachers of Emberly School.
