Clerics | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A church that once existed at this site originally hosted a Presbyterian congregation, starting in 1903. From 1920 to 1969, it was home for an Anglican church and, from 1925 to 1968, for a United church. A community centre used the building from 1969 to 1991, at which time it was demolished. Some of the bricks from the original building were used to build this monument, which was dedicated in July 1994. Also in this monument is honour rolls listing those from the local area who served in the First World War and the Second World War.
