Historic Sites of Manitoba: Homewood School No. 1456 (Homewood, RM of Dufferin)

The Homewood School District was established in April 1908 and a one-room schoolhouse operated in Homewood in the Rural Municipality of Dufferin. In 1964, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Carman Consolidated School District. In 2018, a commemorative monument was erected nearby, beside a monument for the first helicopter flight in Canada.

Among the teachers of Homewood School was Ida E. Brown Sanderson (1945-1947).
