Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church (558 Cook Street, Boissevain, Municipality of Boissevain-Morton)

Built in 1887, St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church is the oldest building in Boissevain. It is a strong reminder of the Anglo-Ontario cultural roots of its original congregation. The building exhibits basic Gothic Revival qualities, such as being small and modest, of wood frame construction and the pointed windows along the side walls.

A monument at the front of the church, constructed by master mason Joe Jozsa, was donated by Bill Moncur and Hattie Moncur in memory of Louisa (Moncur) Henderson (1915-1996). The bell on top is inscribed with “Presented to Bower Lake Presbyterian Camp, Boissevain, Man. by Canadian Pacific Railway Co. Feb. 6, 1962.”
