Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bethel Lutheran Church and Cemetery (Danvers, Municipality of Clanwilliam-Erickson)

The weather vane on the roof of this small church, in the Municipality of Clanwilliam-Erickson, indicates that it was built in 1912. This date is corroborated by a plaque on the church exterior, which indicates it operated between 1912 and 1957. Next to the nearby cemetery is a small plaque, affixed to a small boulder, that was unveiled in 1977 in memory of pioneers from the Danvers district.
