Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Demetrius Ukrainian Catholic Church / Bjarmi Cemetery (Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton)

This cemetery in the Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton was the former site of St. Demetrius Ukrainian Catholic Church, built in 1921 by Ukrainian settlers in the Bjarmi area north of Arborg. The building was later moved to the Arborg & District Multicultural Heritage Village and refurbished as part of the Manitoba Prairie Churches project.
