Historic Sites of Manitoba: Rosenburg School No. 1773 (Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton)

The Rosenburg School District was organized formally in February 1915 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at the northwest corner of NW24-24-2E in what is now the Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its catchment area became part of the Evergreen School Division. The former school building was renovated into a private residence. At the time of a 2015 site visit, the building stood vacant.
