Historic Sites of Manitoba: Linden School No. 2051 (RM of Tache)

The Linden School District was established formally in July 1920 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE20-8-5E in the Rural Municipality of Tache. The district was dissolved in 1968 and its catchment area became part of the Hanover School Division. A monument commemorates the school at its former site.

Among the teachers of Linden School were Richard Reimer, Ralph Brown, Miss Dyruk, Randolf Neil Unruh, and Mr. Wedel.
