Historic Sites of Manitoba: Anglican Church of the Ascension (286 Second Street West, Stonewall)

This Anglican church in Stonewall was constructed in 1882 on a design by Winnipeg architect Mancel Willmot. Quarry owners and stonemasons Enoch and Joe Williams donated the stone for constructing the church which was probably done with volunteer labour. The parochial hall, east of the church, was built in 1901 for $815. The chancel was added to the main structure in 1906.

Among the clerics who serviced at this church was Reverend Frank Green (1881-1885).
