Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. George’s Anglican Cemetery (RM of Woodlands)

This cemetery at SE16-14-2W in the Rural Municipality of Woodlands was the original site of St. George's Anglican Church, constructed in 1877 on land donated by David Porteous. Between 1896 and 1897, the original log building was replaced with a wood frame structure. Destroyed by fire on 6 June 1945, the congregation purchased an unused church at Rosser and moved it to Woodlands in August 1947. The new church was opened officially on 20 June 1948.
