Geocache site brought to you by Turtle Mountain Souris Plains Heritage Association. Lat: N 49°19.483′ Long: W 100°50.667′ . Description from TMSPHA website.
The two-storey fieldstone building that still stands on the north side of Napinka was completed in 1901, and is one of the most unique schools built in Manitoba. The stone that went into building the school was hauled from south of the current Highway 3. In a time before modern tools and tractors this would have been a huge undertaking considering the size of some of the stones. There are two rooms upstairs where most classes were taught, along with a library, a furnace room and a second room in the basement that was used as a gym for many years.
Now designated a Municipal Heritage Site, the school has not been in use since 1975. However, the attached annex is now a community centre, open for drop-in coffee on morning weekdays, as well as hosting community events.
