Historic Sites of Manitoba: North Antler School No. 514 (Municipality of Two Borders)

The North Antler School District was established formally in August 1887 and a school was erected the next year, on the northeast quarter of 9-2-28 west of the Principal Meridian, in what is now the Municipality of Two Borders. In 1897, it was moved to SE14-2-28W. The school closed in June 1951 and the district was merged into the Edward Municipal School District. The school building is no longer present at the site, but a monument commemorating it was dedicated in 1988.
