Historic Sites of Manitoba: Franklin Museum (Dominion City, RM of Franklin)

Constructed in 1879 as an Episcopal Methodist Church, the building was purchased by the Anglican Parish of Dominion City in 1908 and relocated to its present site. It was renamed all Saints, expanded in size and consecrated in 1912 by Archbishop Samuel Pritchard. It is a good example of modest Gothic-styled architecture. The central tower, with its pointed arched doorway and decorative wooden trim, is topped by a tall peaked steeple and cross. Pointed arched windows with delicate tracery, wooden mouldings and stained glass in the sanctuary enhance the exterior. All Saints Anglican Church closed in the mid-1960s and, in 1985, the building was purchased by the Franklin Craft Club. In 1992, it became a community museum.
