Historic Sites of Manitoba: Alexander Presbyterian Church / Alexander United Church (Alexander, RM of Whitehead)

The United church at Alexander, in the Rural Municipality of Whitehead, was built in 1887 for a Presbyterian congregation. The annex and spire were added in 1908. When in 1919 the congregation merged with that of the local Methodist church to form a Union church (United church after 1925), the Presbyterian building continued to be used for services while the Methodist building was sold for use as a Masonic Lodge.

Among the clerics of Alexander United Church were Herbert Thomas Reynolds (1925-1930) and Wallace R. Donogh (c1954-1962).
