Historic Sites of Manitoba: Rosa School No. 2200 (RM of Mountain)

The Rosa School District was organized formally in June 1929 and a one-room schoolhouse was constructed at SW15-33-21W in the Rural Municipality of Mountain, on two acres of land donated by farmer Nykolay Adamowski. The district was dissolved in 1966 and its area became part of the Pine River Consolidated School District No. 2438 and later the Duck Mountain School Division.

The first teacher of Rosa School was Mr. Hansen.
