Historic Sites of Manitoba: Amaranth United Church Monument (Amaranth, RM of Alonsa)

This stone cairn in the village of Amaranth in the Rural Municipality of Alonsa, unveiled in 1994, commemorates the former Amaranth United Church which once stood here. Services were originally held in the home of Bill Grant. The house was later turned over to the church congregation and used as a manse then, in 1937, it became the church. It was used until 1952 when a new church building was erected. Dedicated on 17 August 1952, the church closed on 30 June 1990. The building and land were sold and turned into an insurance agency. The monument also commemorates the unmarked graves of three children buried nearby.
