Historic Sites of Manitoba: Franko School No. 1515 (RM of Stuartburn)

The Franko School District was organized formally in November 1909. As of 1945, a one-room schoolhouse was operating at SW21-3-8E in the Rural Municipality of Stuartburn. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its catchment area became part of the Boundary School Division.

Among the teachers of Franko School were John Mathew Podolsky (1929-1930) and Walter Constantine Bilych (1930-1934).
