Historic Sites of Manitoba: Tiger Hills School No. 335 (RM of Argyle)

The Tiger Hills School District was established formally in June 1885 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NE7-5-14W in the Rural Municipality of Argyle. The school closed in 1946 and its remaining students went to Baldur Consolidated School No. 667. The building was later used as a garage at NW7-5-14W but a monument commemorates it at the earlier site.
