Cairn to Commemorate Early Settlers of the Area

During various floods affecting the town, particularly the 1950 and 1966 floods, creation of dikes apparently destroyed many graves near the church. There remained no public record of these individuals.
Heritage Saint-Norbert members painstakingly searched the church records to find their names so that a cairn could be erected in their memory. The Cairn is now complete and contains the names of over eleven hundred persons who were buried here but their graves were lost. A booklet listing their names was also produced.
