Historic Sites of Manitoba: Whitewater Mennonite Cemetery (Municipality of Boissevain-Morton)

Between 1923 and 1929, two groups of Mennonite settlers from Russia arrived in southwestern Manitoba. In late 1925, they occupied an abandoned church in the community of Whitewater, in what is now the Municipality of Boissevain-Morton, to establish the Whitewater Mennonite Church. It is believed that the first burials in the adjacent cemetery occurred in 1939.
