Historic Sites of Manitoba: Winona School No. 2211 (Municipality of Roblin)

The Winona School District was organized formally in November 1929. A school building operated on the southeast quarter of 16-25-26 west of the Principal Meridian, in what is now the Municipality of Roblin. It closed in 1967. The original school building, now standing vacant and surrounding by dense shrubs, remains at the site.
