Historic Sites of Manitoba: Knox Presbyterian Church / Knox United Church (Binscarth, Municipality of Russell-Binscarth)

Built in 1903, Knox Presbyterian Church at Binscarth, in what is now the Municipality of Russell-Binscarth, became a local Union Church in 1922 and a United Church in 1925. Extensive renovations were done to the church exterior in 1983. The last church service was held in 2015, after which the church was sold. As of 2019, the present owner uses it for an apiary business.

Among the clerics who served here were John Alexander Beattie (1900-1906) and Frederick William Lee (1926-1931).
