Historic Sites of Manitoba: Erinside School No. 1682 (RM of Woodlands)

The Erinside School District was formally established in June 1913. A one-room schoolhouse was erected on the southeast quarter of 23-16-1 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Woodlands. The school closed and the district was dissolved in January 1965. As of the summer of 2020, the building was still standing, along with its adjacent teacherage. However, the rear part of the teacherage has collapsed. The school and teacherage comprise a municipally-designated historic site.

Among the teachers of Erinside School was R. O. P. Bolton.
