Historic Sites of Manitoba: Arnaud United Church and Cemetery (Arnaud, Municipality of Emerson-Franklin)

Built in 1904 and opened officially by George Bryce, this church in Arnaud in the Municipality of Emerson-Franklin, a municipally-designated historic site (2006), was initially occupied by a Presbyterian congregation, later the United Church following the 1925 unification of Presbyterian, Methodist, and Congregationalist faiths in Canada. The church closed in 1971 and the building stands disused. A nearby cemetery contains a few stone markers and a monument beside the building, erected in 1981, lists the names of those buried in the cemetery.
