Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hazel School No. 517 (Municipality of Pembina)

The Hazel School District was established formally in October 1887, and a one-room school building was erected on the northwest quarter of 2-4-9 west of the Principal Meridian, in what is now the Municipality of Pembina. It operated until July 1966 when it merged with Manitou Consolidated School No. 314.

Among the teachers of Hazel School were Nellie McClung (1890-1891) and Miss Edith Young.
