Historic Sites of Manitoba: Horod Ukrainian Catholic Cemetery (Municipality of Harrison Park)

This cemetery is situated southeast of Horod in the Municipality of Harrison Park on the homestead of Stefan Malczuk (Malchuk) and his wife Ursula Krenkiewicz who in 1899 immigrated from Ukraine with their five children. The first burial occurred in 1904, the year that Stefan Malczuk died.

On 7 July 1924, Ursula Krenkiewicz agreed to sell one acre of her homestead to the Greek Catholic Church on the condition that the cemetery be used by any Ruthenians in the Horod district whether or not they be members of the church. The purchase was witnessed by lawyer Walter Cooper Richardson and Ursula’s son-in-law Michael Gregorash.
