Mennonite Heritage Village recently unveiled a newly designed website at Early in 2012 we applied for and received funding from the Steinbach Community Foundation Inc. and the Employee Foundation of the VKR Group on the recommendation of Loewen. These funds have allowed us to redevelop our website with a view to making it more interactive.

The new website provides vast amounts of information about our artifacts, activities, programs, and various other aspects of MHV. Photographs are used liberally to enhance communication.

Members wishing to renew their membership can do so by printing the form available on the website, filling in the requested information, and sending the form with appropriate membership fee to MHV. Similarly, volunteers will find an application form online which allows them to get involved quickly and efficiently. Donations toward the work of MHV can also be made online using a credit or debit card.

More enhancements to functionality are being planned. We would welcome observations from guests to this new website. is Steinbach's only source for community news and information such as weather and classifieds.
