Inscription. Mennonite settlers who arrived in this area in 1892 held church services in private homes until 1896, when the first church of the conference of Mennonites in the North-West Territories was built on this site. The Mennonite community had organized the Rosenort Mennonite Church in 1894, named for the community in West Prussia from which their elder, Peter Regier, and others had come. In 1902 the original log structure was replaced by the present church, which was remodelled in 1954.
 
Erected 1966 by Department of Natural Resources.
