Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hamburg School No. 2139 (Municipality of Rhineland)

The Hamburg School District was established in August 1925 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NE16-3-3W in what is now the Municipality of Rhineland. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Plum Coulee Consolidated School District and later the Rhineland School Division.

Among the teachers at Hamburg School were Dora Suderman (1932-1933), Andrew R. Sobering (1933-1934), William Frank Derksen (1937-1938), and Henry Krushel (1946-1949).
