Historic Sites of Manitoba: Neuanlage Mennonite Village and Cemetery (RM of Hanover)

In 1879, the traditional Mennonite Neuanlage village was established at this site, in what is now the Rural Municipality of Hanover, with communally-owned fields and pasturelands arranged in long narrow farmsteads. The village only existed until 1889. A monument at the site commemorates the Johann Koop homestead and the Kleine Gemeinde cemetery in the village.
