Historic Sites of Manitoba: Schonthal 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 Schonthal was established in 1874 and dissolved in 1889. The Schonthal cemetery is in an unkept field. Only one gravestone was found during a 2020 site visit.
