Historic Sites of Manitoba: Plankey Plains School No. 1083 (Municipality of Emerson-Franklin)

The Plankey Plains School District was organized formally in June 1900 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NW26-2-5E in what is now the Municipality of Emerson-Franklin. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its catchment area was included in the Boundary School Division.

Among the teachers of Plankey Plains School were Mary P. Kolodzinski (circa 1934) and Mary Chubey (?).
