Historic Sites of Manitoba: Goodlands Cemetery (Goodlands, Municipality of Brenda-Waskada)

A sign above the entrance to this cemetery at the village of Goodlands in the Municipality of Brenda-Waskada implies it was established in 1867 which, if true, would be one of the earliest in the province. In fact, the earliest known burial occurred here in 1903. A memorial at the northeast corner of the cemetery commemorates Goodlands pioneers and military veterans. Two plaques commemorate two local residents, Fred Morningstar and Neil Christensen, for their life-long service to the community.
