The Commons


Situated on 4 acres of land in the historic Mennonite village of Neubergthal, the Neubergthal Commons features the one of a kind Commons Barn, a multipurpose venue opened in 2018; the restored Bergthal School; and the H.F. Hamm House, now used as a picnic shelter.


Commons Barn and the Bergthal School are facilities available year-round


Commons Barn

Commons Barn is an ideal, rustic venue for your next event! The barn features a state of the art audio/video system, is climate controlled, wheelchair accessible and includes barrier-free washrooms. Serving alcohol is permitted.

Commons Barn, formerly known as the Klippenstein barn, is very unique. Originally built near Steinbach when Mennonites first came to Canada, the barn was disassembled and rebuilt in its present location.

The exterior of Commons Barn has been restored to its original appearance, and the interior functions as a large multipurpose space to host visiting groups, events, and the community.


Bergthal School

The Bergthal School is a restored one-room school. The building is climate-controlled, wheelchair accessible and barrier free.

The one-room Bergthal School was constructed in 1904 and functioned as a public school in Altbergthal until its closure in 1965. It then moved to the New Hope School property and served as a classroom until 1979. In 1982 the school was moved to Altona and operated as a museum until 2000.

Facing demolition, interested parties began meeting in 2010 to discuss saving and re-purposing the building. Two years later, the school was moved to the Neubergthal Commons, where it stands today.
