Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hoffnungsthal School / Hopevale School No. 1136 (Municipality of Rhineland)

The Hoffnungsthal School District was established in August 1901 and a schoolhouse operated at SE24-3-1W in what is now the Municipality of Rhineland. In 1950, it was renamed the Hopevale School District and operated until 1964 when it was dissolved and its area became part of the Rosenfeld School District. There is no vestige of the former school building at the site.
