Historic Sites of Manitoba: Uppingham School No. 1428 (RM of Springfield)

The Uppingham School District was established in April 1907 and a one-room school operated at NE18-10-8E in the Rural Municipality of Springfield. The district was dissolved in 1965 and its area became part of the Anola Consolidated School District and later the Transcona-Springfield School Division. The former school building was moved to the site of the Anola and District Museum. Daily registers for the school are available at the Archives of Manitoba.

Among the teachers of Uppingham School was Dorothy Elizabeth Balderstone Langton (?-1931).
