Historic Sites of Manitoba: Birtle Baptist Church (Birtle, Municipality of Prairie View)

Link to:
Clerics | Photos & Maps | Sources

This wood frame building in Birtle, in the Municipality of Prairie View, was brought to the community from Newdale in 1895 and operated as a Baptist Church at the southeast corner of St. Claire Street and Ninth Street until at least 1980. It was later moved to its present site to be used as a tourist kiosk. The former church manse, a two-storey brick structure, remains at the original site, now occupied by the fire hall, and is used as training space.
