Historic Sites of Manitoba: Old Wakopa Cemetery / Henderson Family Cemetery (Municipality of Boissevain-Morton)

This peaceful treed site in the Municipality of Boissevain-Morton has two cemeteries side by side. On one side of a small fence is the cemetery for members of the Henderson family, who homesteaded at SE24-1-19W. Next to it is the cemetery for Old Wakopa, a former community that was once located near here. A commemorative plaque was erected here in July 1997. The site is situated on private property and permission is required prior to visiting.
