New Hamburg Reformed Mennonite Cemetery

The Reformed Mennonite Cemetery is located on across from 1107 Christner Road, on a narrow strip of land between the road and the Nith River. Joseph Jacobs sold a small parcel of land (32 perches) to the Wellington District Council for the use of a common school in 1847 (registered in 1848). No doubt, the space was also used as a cemetery by that time. In 1860 Jacobs conveyed another to rods to the Trustees of the Mennonist Society for a church.

Both the school and the church were later removed to the south side of the road on to tge Hostetler property, and have become known as Hostetler's. The cemetery is now also know by that name as well. The church has been removed, but the cemetery is still used by the Reformed Mennonites and their families.

This cemetery appears to go by several names, depending on what death record or obituary you read. Eg: Hofstetter, Hofstettler, Hostetter, Hostettler, Riverside Mennonite, Wilmot Reformed Mennonite are the more common. It has been documented by the OGS to the OCFA as New Hamburg Reformed Mennonite.
