Description of Historic Place
Emmanuel Cemetery is a Municipal Heritage Property located in the Rural Municipality of Estevan No. 5 approximately five kilometres south of Roche Percee and one kilometre north of the United States border. The property features a small cemetery located on a one acre plot of land.

The heritage value of the property also lies in its landscape. The cemetery is offset from the adjoining ranch land by several hedgerows that define part of the property’s border.
