Historic Sites of Manitoba: Roseneath School No. 691 (RM of Odanah)

Roseneath School District was formally organized in March 1892, and a school building was erected on the southeast quarter of 33-13-18 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Odanah. In 1896, the school was moved to NW27-13-18W but, in March 1920, it burned to the ground. In September 1921, a new Roseneath Consolidated School was built at NE21-13-18W. The school closed in June 1966 and the district was dissolved in January 1967. A monument was erected at the former school site in 1983.

Among the teachers of Roseneath School was Morris J. Stefaniuk (1965-1966).
