Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Jean Baptiste East School No. 940 (RM of Montcalm)

The St. Jean Baptiste East School District was established in May 1897 and a one-room schoolhouse operated on Lot 202 in the Parish of Ste. Agathe, in the Rural Municipality of Montcalm. The district was dissolved in 1959 and its area became part of the St. Jean-Baptiste Consolidated School District and later the Red River School Division.
