History / Biographical
The Canadian Doukhobor Society (CDS) was established in Salmo, B.C on January 1, 1967. Their aim was the unification of all Doukhobor on the basis of Doukhobor principles. The organization supported and promoted learning of Russian language, its own distance learning system, periodicals dealing with Doukhobor education and culture. The Doukhobors emigrated from Russia in the late 19th century. The Doukhobors originally settled in Saskatchewan and later branched into British Columbia. In 1915-17, the Christian Community of Universal Brotherhood established a new colony of 13,500 acres near the towns of Cowley and Lundbreck in Alberta on the main southern line of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The Alberta settlement was an important transit centre for production of grains, vegetables and hay for the horse logging and orchard operations in B.C., and for the natural advantage of stock raising. The Doukhobor that lived in South-western Alberta came from the British Columbia settlements.

History / Biographical
This cemetery originated as a direct request for interment space on the south side of the city as the old Pioneer Cemetery (St. Patrick's) was not meeting the needs of the citizens of the time. 1901 the Anglican Church started a private cemetery originating with Plan One - Block One located in the centre of today's Mountain View, purchased by the City in 1942. 1905, an undertaker named B. C. Moore started a second private cemetery just east of the original Anglican Church block, subsequently turned over to the City in 1909. 1909, the death of Lou Louenthal prompted the Hebrew Community in Lethbridge to start their own cemetery so they purchased 1.2 acres west of Moore's Cemetery, this cemetery is also now a part of Mountain View Cemetery as well; and is maintained by the City under a special arrangement.
