  • Notes 
    • Hallman Meeting House

      Begun: 1837 Closed: 1891

      It is not known just when the first log meeting house of the Hallman congregation was built. However, on June 1, 1847 a one-acre plot of land, for a meeting house and burial ground, was deeded from  Adam Unger  to trustee, Jacob H. Detweiler. This land was east of Roseville on the northwest corner of Lot 31, Concession 11 of North Dumfries Township, and on the south side of the Blenheim or Roseville Road, which was built westerly from Galt. A stone cairn made up of old tombstones stands on this property today.

      A new brick church, called Hallman Mennonite Church, was constructed in 1854 (Burkholder 1935:104) or 1856 (Taylor 1970:282) on land on the north side of the road, just west of the old meeting house. The congregation is reported to have disbanded in 1891. The property was sold soon after.
