Historic Sites of Manitoba: Woodglen School No. 1722 (Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton)

The Woodglen School District was established formally in February 1914 and a one-room schoolhouse operated in the southwest corner of NE23-24-4E 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.

Among the teachers of Woodglen School was Edith Kerr.
