Pembina Valley Census Division
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
From Carman, Manitoba, take Highway 13 North to the 305 (Barnsley) Road. Go east on 305 for eight miles. The cemetery is on the Southwest corner of the intersection at 305 and a gravel road. There are several pine trees by the graves on the west end of the cemetery.
Originally part of the Martin A. Hiebert farm, Martin Hiebert donated this section as a cemetery for the Homewood Mennonite Church. The Broad Valley Schoolhouse was located on the Northwest corner of the intersection and the church further west of there. Neither the church, nor the schoolhouse, remain but there is a farmhouse where the schoolhouse was and another farmhouse directly east across the road on the Northeast corner.
The Martin Hiebert farm was directly south of the cemetery. Only a tree remains there now to mark where the farm yard once was.
