Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bissett United Church / Hawrysh Memorial Centre (Bissett, Northern Manitoba)

From 1934 to 1947, United Church services in Bissett were held in the local community hall. Construction of a dedicated building began in the summer of 1946 and the Bissett United Church opened in August 1947. Regular services ended in 1966 when the nearby gold mine closed. The building continued to be used for occasional services, baptisms, weddings, and funerals. In 2004, it was sold to the Hawrysh Memorial Centre Committee and renamed the Hawrysh Memorial Centre.
