Historic Sites of Manitoba: Russell Anglican Rectory (128 Memorial Avenue North, Russell, Municipality of Russell-Binscarth)

In 1889, Major C. A. Boulton donated one acre of land in Russell for construction of an Anglican Church. Construction began in September 1889 and the church opened for the first services two months later. This house, constructed nearby in the early 20th century, was the residence for the clerics who led the church through the years. The present church dates from 1963, and the original rectory was replaced by the neighboring residence.
