Historic Sites of Manitoba: Zamek School No. 1504 (RM of Reynolds)

The Zamek School District was established in June 1909 and a school building operated on the northeast quarter of 16-8-12E in what is now the Rural Municipality of Reynolds. After the school closed, the building was moved to a site near Highway #11 where it was used as a garage and workshop. It is believed to have been demolished around 2010.

Among the teachers who worked at Zamek School was Vic Woyna.
