Historic Sites of Manitoba: Blumenhof Community Cemetery (RM of Hanover)

The village of Blumenhof, situated in what is today the Rural Municipality of Hanover, was established in 1875 on sections 23 and 24 in township 7 and range 6 East by ten Kleinegemeinde families. The village had a school which also doubled as a place of worship until 1918. The school, which had been relocated, was closed in 1969. Blumenhof was the first village to be dissolved, in 1887, when the farmers began moving to their own land holdings.

A cemetery, which had been established at the east end of the village, was used until 1887. From 1887 to 1900, burials took place at several places in the area. The community started this cemetery in October 1900 with the burial of Jacob Plett (1897-1900). The cemetery was used until 1918 when the people of Blumenhof and Blumenort built a church and started a new cemetery one mile west of this site.
