Historic Sites of Manitoba: All Saints Anglican Cemetery (RM of Morton)

This cemetery is situated in the Rural Municipality of Morton, on the site of the former All Saints Anglican Church, built here in the spring of 1888. The church was consecrated by Archbishop Machray at a service on 26 May 1888. The first burial in the adjacent cemetery occurred in 1893 and it is alleged there are six graves in total. The church closed in 1929 and the building was moved to the Horton district and converted into a private residence. A fence around the cemetery was erected by the Wassewa Ladies Group.
