Historic Sites of Manitoba: Goodlands School No. 1007 (Municipality of Glenella-Lansdowne)

The Goodlands School, located in what is now the Municipality of Glenella-Lansdowne, was established in March 1899. It became part of the Glenella Municipal School system in 1936, and closed in 1961. The building, once used as a granary, stands vacant at the site along with a commemorative monument.

Among the teachers of Goodlands School was John W. Mark (c1916-1917).
