Historic Sites of Manitoba: Knox Presbyterian / Basswood United Church (Basswood, RM of Oakview)

A monument in the village of Basswood, in the Rural Municipality of Oakview, marks the site of Basswood United Church. Built in 1901, it was known initially as Knox Presbyterian Church, becoming Basswood United in 1925 with the unification in Canada of the Presbyterian, Methodist, and Congregationalist faiths. The church served the community until June 1984.

Among the clerics who served at Basswood United was George H. Hambley.
