Historic Sites of Manitoba: Mazeppa School No. 2088 (RM of Stuartburn)

The Mazeppa School District was established in September 1921 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NE25-1-7E in the Rural Municipality of Stuartburn. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its area was added to the Boundary School Division but the original school building is still present at the site, used as a private residence.

Among the teachers of Mazeppa School were M. A. Buck (1929-1930) and Anna Dill Carson (1931-1932).
