Historic Sites of Manitoba: Arborg Unitarian Church (242 Ingolf Street, Arborg)

In 1891, Reverend Magnus J. Skaptason preached a dramatic Easter sermon in the Arborg area, signalling local support for the formation of the Unitarian Church, a new church formed in opposition to the Lutheran Church. Unitarianism quickly took hold throughout North America. In the Interlake, there were 13 Unitarian congregations established and eight buildings constructed. Today only the church buildings at Arborg, Gimli and Arnes remain. The Arborg Unitarian Church was constructed in 1927 by volunteers from the congregation. It was designated in 1998 as a municipal heritage site.
