Historic Sites of Manitoba: Huff School No. 948 (RM of Argyle)

The Huff School District was established formally in May 1898 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SW31-4-13 west of the Principal Meridian in the Rural Municipality of Argyle. It was destroyed by fire and rebuilt in 1954, then closed in January 1960 when it became part of Baldur Consolidated School. This marker is located one mile west of the original school site, on SW36-4-15W, across the road from the Argyle Cemetery. It was dedicated in a ceremony on 23 June 1996.
