Archives of Manitoba, MB Education (Series 2) Kilmory School SD# 28 (N21964)

Orr School #343

Orr SD was formed in 1884 and a school was built the following year on SW 23-6-6w on land bought from Charles Usher. A new school was built in 1909.

Initially a large school district, Orr gradually lost land to new adjoining school districts of Emberly, Lintraten and Graysville. Orr school district dissolved when Graysville SD formed and the school closed in 1919. The building was sold to Kilmory School District in 1921 and moved to
SW 21-6-5w.
