Historic Sites of Manitoba: Kronsgart Cemetery / Kronstgard Cemetery (RM of Hanover)

When Mennonites settled the East Reserve, in what is now the Rural Municipality of Hanover, farms were set up in small villages with communally-owned fields and pasturelands arranged in long narrow farmsteads. The result was a large number of towns with graveyards. By 1920, most of these villages no longer existed. This site southeast of Grunthal was a graveyard for one of the villages, Kronsgart.
