Neubergthal Street Village National Historic Site of Canada was founded in 1876 by a group of related Mennonite families on the open plains of southern Manitoba. The village is now surrounded by flat farmland. The community occupies six sections of land where residences, farmyards, and communally owned arable fields and pasturelands are arranged in long narrow farmsteads. The farmsteads that form the village are positioned in traditional fashion behind fencing along a single tree-lined street, creating a distinct identity. Official recognition refers to the street village on the block of six sections of land.

Neubergthal is one of the best-preserved single street Mennonite Villages in North America. The village layout and architecture was developed over centuries of Mennonite life in Europe and Russia. Some characteristic features are a single village street, lined with long narrow lot farmsteads perpendicular to the street. Homes that consist of house and barn connected together and set back from the street at a uniform distance.
