Historic Sites of Manitoba: Shantz Immigration Sheds Monument (RM of Hanover)

This monument south of Niverville in the Rural Municipality of Hanover commemorates four immigration sheds constructed by Jacob Shantz and used for a couple of years by newly arrived settlers in the Mennonite East Reserve. The sheds were situated about 100 feet to the south, at the intersection of Hespeler (39N) and Shantz (19E) roads.
