Historic Sites of Manitoba: Roseisle Hutterite Cemetery (RM of Thompson)

A small cemetery in the Rural Municipality of Thompson, containing at least six marked graves, is believed to have been established by the former Roseisle Hutterite Colony. Established in 1929, the colony is believed to have closed in 1936, after three consecutive years of crop failures, and moved to South Dakota.
