Historic Sites of Manitoba: Neufeld School No. 1580 (RM of Morris)

The Neufeld School District was formally established in July 1911 and a school building operated at SE25-5-2W in the Rural Municipality of Morris. The original school burned down in 1944 and a replacement was constructed later that year. The district was dissolved in 1960 and its catchment area became part of the Lowe Farm Consolidated School District No. 2377. In September 2015, a sign commemorating the school was erected at the site.

Among the teachers of Neufeld School were Margaret Nickel (1913-1915), Isaac Fast (1933-1938), Justina Wiens (1938-1943), Laura Hiebert (1943-1944), Katie Peters (1944-1946), Lydia Braun (1946-1950), and Mr. Enns (1950-?).
