Historic Sites of Manitoba: All Saints Anglican Church and Cemetery (Erinview, RM of Woodlands)

Built in 1884, this quaint church and cemetery are situated near East Shoal Lake in the Rural Municipality of Woodlands. Inside the church are the photographs and names of men from the municipality who served in the First World War (1914-1918) and the Second World War (1939-1945). A plaque on the exterior of the church lists seven men who were killed in the First World War, probably removed from a war memorial that had been unveiled on 25 September 1931 at a site near the shore of East Shoal Lake.
