Historical Background

 

Terpenia (Terpeniye) Cemetery (No. 2) was established in 1911 by the Doukhobors living in the vicinity of the former Terpeniye village near Blaine Lake. Located in the rook Hill School District No. 3928 (1917-1954), it also came to be known as Brook Hill Cemetery. It is still in active use today.  It is privately owned and is maintained by a cemetery committee. The cemetery is in very good condition.

 

Layout

 

The cemetery is two acres in size and is unenclosed except for a wire fence on the east side. There are open gates on the east and north sides. The cemetery contains approximately 70 interments in a single section comprised of three rows facing east-west. Approximately 35 graves have no marker and the mounds have been leveled. These remain unidentified. With respect to graves with markers, the markers are typically plain slate, marble or concrete upright headstones or flat markers set flush to the ground.
