Historic Sites of Manitoba: Melrose School No. 1039 (RM of Springfield)

The Melrose School District was established in September 1899 and one-room schoolhouses operated at NE27-12-5E in the Rural Municipality of Springfield. In 1965, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Oakbank Consolidated School District No. 2426 and later the Transcona Springfield School Division.

Among the teachers of Melrose School were Fred Klym and Dennis Nazeravich (1939-1940).
