Historic Sites of Manitoba: Arnaud United Church and Cemetery (Arnaud, RM of Franklin)

Built in 1904 and opened officially by George Bryce, this church in the village of Arnaud in the Rural Municipality of Franklin, now a municipally-designated historic site, 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 cairn beside the building, erected in 1981, lists the names of those buried in the cemetery.
