Rural Municipality of Rhineland
The Rural Municipality of Rhineland is a former rural municipality (RM) in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was originally incorporated as a rural municipality on February 14, 1880. It ceased on January 1, 2015 as a result of its provincially mandated amalgamation with the Town of Gretna and the Town of Plum Coulee to form the Municipality of Rhineland.
The former RM is located in the southern part of the province, along its border with the state of North Dakota in the United States. It had a population of 4,125 persons in the 2006 census, a slight decrease from the 4,183 reported in the 2001 Census. There is a national historic site at Neubergthal, which was officially designated in 1998 as Neubergthal Street Village.
According to Statistics Canada, the former RM had an area of 953.42 km² (386.12 sq mi).
