Long Description:
Outlook Khristovoye Doukhobor Cemetery is in keeping with the Doukhobor traditions in that the headstones are simple in design. The cemetery is no longer in use and only a few headstones remain. There are approximately 113 interments and most of the grave sites are leveled.

The cemetery is approximately one acre in size and is partially enclosed by a wire fence. What remains of the cemetery is overgrown with tall grass.

The names listed are some of the internments, most do not have markers. The * indicates photographs that were taken.

There is a plaque located near the road it is written in both Russian and English. However, I was not able to provide the Russian text here the following English version is as follows:

The Centennial of the Doukhobor Migration to Canada

Here rest the remains of the Doukhobor Christian Pacifists who came to Canada from Russia in 1899 because of persecution for their life concept and refusal to bear arms.

Guided by their belief in "Toil and Peaceful Life" They and their descendants overcame hardships, maintained their spiritual and cultural integrity, and contributed to the development of the young country that gave them refuge.

Now Mother Earth has reclaimed the remains of these "Spirit wrestlers" and their souls have returned home to rest eternally in God's Heavenly Kingdom. May their legacy inspire future generations to continue the struggle for peace and freedom.
