Historic Sites of Manitoba: Rice Lake School No. 2166 (RM of Mossey River)

The Rice Lake School District was organized formally in January 1927 and a school building was erected at this site in the Rural Municipality of Mossey River. In 1967, it joined the Duck Mountain School Division. The school building was used for a time as a granary but now stands vacant at its former site.
