Pella Mennonite Church and Cemetery

An abandoned church and cemetery nestled into Russell Creek valley in southern Saskatchewan.

The congregation began meeting in 1914. The church was built in 1916 where services were held until 1958 when the church officially closed.

This church and cemetery is believed to be named after the town of Pella, which was east of the Sea of Galilee in the mountains of Gilead. Now, I'm sure everyone knows what happened on the Sea of Galilee so long ago . . .

  1. I have been close to this spot and missed it by a few miles. I will have to see it in the summer.

  2. I wonder if they bought an old school to make into the church as it sure looks like one.
