Historic Sites of Manitoba: Rossendale United Church (Rossendale, Municipality of North Norfolk)

Prior to the building of this church, residents of Rossendale in the Municipality of North Norfolk met in a log schoolhouse northeast of here. Rossendale Church was built and officially opened in June 1907, serving the Presbyterian and Methodist faiths. With church unification in 1925, it became Rossendale United Church.
