Historic Sites of Manitoba: Riverland Ebenezer Lutheran Cemetery (RM of Lac du Bonnet)

This cemetery in the Rural Municipality of Lac du Bonnet was established in 1909 on land donated by Morris Anderson. Most gravestones are of Scandinavian descent, as in the early 1900s this area, which became known as Riverland, was settled mostly by Swedish families.
