Historic Sites of Manitoba: Rosenburg Cemetery (Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton)

Established in 1918 in the Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton, the Rosenburg Cemetery was used until 1946. A monument was erected in memory of immigrants from Austria, Germany, and Ukraine who arrived here between 1911 and 1915, some of whom died here and were buried in the cemetery. A few stone markers are in the cemetery, and the names of all those known to be interred here are listed on a plaque at the site.
