Historic Sites of Manitoba: Mons School No. 1987 (Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester)

The Mons School District was established in March 1919, named for the First World War battlefield, and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE17-1-23W in what is now the Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester. In 1966, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Deloraine Consolidated School District and later the Antler River School Division. A monument at the former school site was erected in 2020.
