Historic Sites of Manitoba: Mink River School No. 1154 (RM of Dauphin)

The Mink River School District was established in December 1901 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE27-28-20W in the Rural Municipality of Dauphin. In 1965, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Sifton School District No. 1009. No vestige of the school remains at the site.

Among the teachers of Mink River School was Nicholas Bilash (1938-1939).
