Historic Sites of Manitoba: Evenlode School No. 2347 (RM of Mountain)

The Evenlode School District was organized formally in May 1953 and a schoolhouse was constructed at SW5-39-26W in the Rural Municipality of Mountain. It operated for only two years, from September 1954 to June 1956, closing due to low student enrollment. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its catchment area became part of the Swan Valley School Division. The building is no longer present at the site.

The teachers of Evenlode School were Mr. Elizabeth Luce (1954), Miss Helen Evelyn Fortney (1954-1955), and Miss Lila M. Truhn (1955-1956).
