Historic Sites of Manitoba: Morranville School No. 901 (Municipality of Grandview)

Established in 1898 at a site north of here, the Morranville School District operated at this site in the Municipality of Grandview from 1920 to 1967. After the school closed, its remaining students went to Grandview Consolidated School No. 2447. The distinctive red-brick school building, built on the same plans as Glencove School, now appears to be vacant.

Among the teachers of Morranville School was Borislaw Nicholas Bilash (1944-1945).
