Historic Sites of Manitoba: Pembina School No. 270 (Municipality of Louise)

Pembina School was established formally in May 1884. A school building was erected by 1889 on the northwest quarter of 25-4-11 west of the Principal Meridian, in what is now the Municipality of Louise. It closed in 1967 and the remaining students went to Pilot Mound Consolidated School No. 105. The district was dissolved the next year. The school building is no longer present at the site but metal sign commemorates it.
