Historic Sites of Manitoba: Goulbourne School No. 1878 (Municipality of West Interlake)

The Goulbourne School District was established in April 1917 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE35-24-8W in what is now the Municipality of West Interlake. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Lakeshore School Division. At the time of a 2016 site visit, only remains of the school’s stone foundation were visible.

Among the teachers of Goulbourne School were Mr. Hallard (1917-1920), Dorothy Harris (1935), and Wilma Reimer.
