Historic Sites of Manitoba: Broad Valley Cemetery / Homewood Bergthaler Mennonite Cemetery (RM of Dufferin)

This small cemetery along Provincial Highway 305 in the Rural Municipality of Dufferin was established in 1934. Originally part of a farm owned by Martin A. Hiebert, he donated land to the Homewood Mennonite Church for its establishment. The Hiebert farm was located directly south of the cemetery. Only a tree remains there now to mark the yard site.
