Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hoffnungsfeld Pioneers Monument (Winkler)

This monument in Bethel Heritage Park in Winkler commemorates a group of Mennonites who, in 1876, emigrated from Russia to Canada. This group, whose names are listed on the monument, settled in a village they called Hoffnungsfeld (“Field of Hopefulness”) about one mile west of this site. When the Canadian Pacific Railway opened a siding at Winkler, some of these settlers moved closer to the railway. This monument was erected by the Winkler Heritage Society on 17 September 2000.
