Historic Sites of Manitoba: Kronsthal North CMC 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 pasturelands and individually owned fields arranged in long narrow farmsteads. The village of Kronsthal was established in 1874 and 1875. The village diminished over time was replaced by the village of New Bothwell. The earliest burial listed for the Kronsthal North Cemetery occurred in 1898. The cemetery is unkept and in a field. A second cemetery, called Kronsthal South, is known to exist but the exact location is not known.
