Historic Sites of Manitoba: Ravens Glen School No. 687 (RM of Oakview)

The Ravens Glen School District was established formally in August 1892. A one-classroom, wood frame school building was constructed on the southwest quarter of 12-15-21W in what is now the Rural Municipality of Oakview. In 1915, it became part of the Cardale Consolidated School No. 1763. The former school building was sold to local farmer Charles Shields for $125 and moved to NW1-15-21W where it was renovated into a residence. It was later used as a home by the Parks family then it stood vacant for a time, then it was burned down.
