Historic Sites of Manitoba: North Lake School No. 1431 (RM of Mossey River)

The North Lake School District was organized formally in March 1907 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NW11-29-18W in the Rural Municipality of Mossey River. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its area became part of the Duck Mountain School Division. Only the concrete steps of the former school building were present at the time of a 2015 site visit.

Among the teachers of North Lake School were John Kerkach, Miss Safinuik, and Mr. Zurbyk.
