Historic Sites of Manitoba: Gordon Union School No. 393 (Municipality of Norfolk Treherne)

The Gordon Union School District was established in April 1885 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE2-9-9W in what is now the Municipality of Norfolk Treherne. The district was dissolved in 1956 and its area became part of the Rathwell Consolidated School District. A commemorative sign stands at the former school site.
