Historic Sites of Manitoba: Lonesand School No. 1940 (Lonesand, RM of Stuartburn)

The Lonesand School District was established formally in July 1918 and a one-room schoolhouse operated in Lonesand in the Rural Municipality of Stuartburn. The district was dissolved in April 1967 and its catchment area became part of the Boundary School Division. The former school building remains at the site.
