Historic Sites of Manitoba: Woodville Cemetery (RM of Wallace-Woodworth)

This cemetery is situated in the Rural Municipality of Wallace-Woodworth. A monument inside its entrance, erected on 4 May 1976, commemorates Woodville Church, built in 1892 and used until 1959, and pioneers of the Woodville district. Two other plaques affixed to the monument in 1994 and 1995, respectively, commemorate Woodville School and Kola School.
