Roseville (Detweiler) Mennonite Cemetery

Notes:
3445 Roseville Road
Date Built: 1855
Location: Roseville Rd. past Northumberland St. Civic Address: 3445

This traditional nineteenth century Mennonite Meetinghouse was made of fieldstone. During its history, many renovations to the building have occurred. The original building had two doors, one on the east end for women and the one located on the west end was for men. The seating was also segregated, the men being allowed to sit in the main seats, and the women sitting along the sides. In 1921 an entrance door was cut into the east end of the building, the pulpit was relocated to the west end, and the benches were moved. In 1956 when the building was 101 years old, the exterior of the church was covered in stucco. The Sunday School room and oil furnace room were also built.

The historical significance of this building is immense. The building is called the Detweiler Meetinghouse because the first minister of the church was Jacob Detweiler. Jacob Detweiler and his family moved to Roseville from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania in 1822. In 1830 the land for the church was bought for ten schillings from Samuel C. Snyder, the son of Doon Pioneer, Christian Schneider. In 1836 a log church was built. This building was located west of the present building. The stone church that presently stands on the site was built in 1855 and used as a church until 1965. On January 7th, 1966 the church was closed and the Roseville congregation joined with the Mennonite congregation in Blenheim. The last sermon was given by Bishop C.F. Derstine. In 1987 there were plans to demolish the building, but they were never carried out because of the widespread protest by members of the community. In 1992, the land was transferred from the Mennonite Conference of Ontario to the Detweiler Meetinghouse Inc. The cemetery was founded in 1833, and in 1958 additional land for the cemetery was granted by Melvin Becker, the great grandson of Samuel Snyder. The cemetery contains many early settlers of Roseville. The tallest stone in the cemetery was a Perrin Family stone which at one time had a large ball of red granite at the top. Members of the cemetery board thought the ball was too tall and removed it from the cemetery.
