Historic Sites of Manitoba: Chain Lakes Cemetery (Municipality of Grassland)

This small cemetery atop a small hill along highway 21 in the Municipality of Grassland was also the site of a Quaker church. Built in 1899, services were held in it until 1949 when it was moved to the village of Dand where it became Dand United Church. A commemorative cairn was erected at this site in 1967.
