Historic Sites of Manitoba: Makinak Methodist Church / Makinak United Church (Makinak, RM of Lakeshore)

Built in 1910, with a cornerstone laid by Rev. J. S. Woodsworth, this brick Methodist church at Makinak, in what is now the Rural Municipality of Lakeshore, was also used by local Presbyterians. It became a United Church after the 1925 unification of these faiths in Canada.
