Historic Sites of Manitoba: DeLamenais School No. 1798 (Municipality of Ste. Rose)

The DeLamenais School District was organized formally in June 1915 and a school building was erected on the southeast quarter of 19-24-14 west of the Principal Meridian in what is now the Municipality of Ste. Rose. The district was dissolved in 1965 and the building was renovated into a private residence. The remaining students went to Ste. Rose du Lac Consolidated School No. 835.
