Historic Sites of Manitoba: McDavid School No. 1234 (RM of Springfield)

The McDavid School District was organized in March 1903 and a one-classroom schoolhouse operated at NE34-10-6E in the Rural Municipality of Springfield. In 1965, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Anola Consolidated School District and later the Transcona-Springfield School Division. The former school building was moved to the site of the Anola and District Museum.
