Historic Sites of Manitoba: Glencross School No. 71 (RM of Stanley)

Glencross School District was organized in December 1878. A school building was constructed in the southwest quarter of 9-2-5 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Stanley. It closed in May 1969. The monument, erected around 1969, lists the teachers who taught at Glencross School through the years, and the last members of the school board. As of the early 1990s, the wood frame school building remained at the site. It is now gone.
