Built between 1906 and 1907, Albert Carman Methodist Church, after Bishop Albert Carman (1833-1917) for whom the Town of Carman is named, was designed by Winnipeg architect William Fingland. It replaced a church that had burned on 3 October 1905. The stained glass windows were created by Luxfer Prism of Toronto. In 1925, the congregation voted to merge with that of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church but separate services were held until July 1941. It was designated as a municipally-designated heritage site in 1988.
