Historic Sites of Manitoba: First Baptist Church / Knox Presbyterian Church / St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church (361 Russell Street, Brandon)

Link to:
Clerics | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

This wood frame Presbyterian church is believed to be the oldest church building in Brandon. Built in 1885 at the corner of Tenth Street and Princess Avenue as the home to First Baptist Church, it was moved sometime between 1904 and 1906 to the corner of Thirteenth Street and Van Horne Avenue where it became Knox Presbyterian Church. In 1910, it was moved to its present location on Russell Street to become St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church.

A pair of honour rolls inside the church commemorate parishioners who served and were killed in the First World War and Second World War.
