Erb Street Mennonite Cemetery, Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

Notes: The Erb Street Mennonite Cemetery lies at the corner of Erb Street and Fischer-Hallman Road in the city of Waterloo, Ontario. The land for the original church on this site was donated in 1851 by David Eby senior. A red brick church was erected, which we know as the David Eby Church. The surrounding churchyard was used for burials. At the time, this church was well out of Waterloo Village proper and was perhaps not as convenient as might be for the local Mennonite church, but it also served members of the congregation in the surrounding parts of Waterloo Township.

In 1902 the Eby church was replaced by a new Erb Street building at a new location closer to town. This building, much enlarged, is an important part of the religious life of Waterloo to this day. The old churchyard remained as the cemetery for the new church, although separated from the building. As Waterloo has expanded, especially in the 1970's and 1980's, the city has come out to surround the small cemetery, which is now crowed by suburbia. The church and its congregation are no longer rural.

The cemetery is well kept and a reminder of the Mennonite origins and traditions of the early days of Waterloo.
