Historic Sites of Manitoba: Shannon School No. 583 (RM of Stanley)

The Shannon School District was established in May 1889 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NW26-3-6W in the Rural Municipality of Stanley. In 1965, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Morden Consolidated School District.

Among the teachers who worked at Shannon School were John M. George (circa 1905) and Lenore Gwendoline Tole (1944-1945).
