Historic Sites of Manitoba: Holy Cross Ukrainian Catholic Cemetery (Zelena, Municipality of Roblin)

This cemetery in the Municipality of Roblin was established in 1909. An associated church, built in 1910 and closed in 1981 but still standing as recently as 2012, was gone at the time of a 2014 site visit. It is commemorated by a monument containing the original church bell.
