Historic Sites of Manitoba: Koroluwka School No. 1217 (RM of Stuartburn)

The Koroluwka School District was organized formally in February 1903 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NW5-2-7E in the Rural Municipality of Stuartburn. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its catchment area became part of the Boundary School Division.

It is believed that, after the school closed, the building was moved to Vita and used as a classroom. When a multi-room school building was constructed there, the one-room school was sold.
